I find the trend of creating new electronic devices that produce 3-D images frightening. It is a small step towards creating a more realistic world in the fake images that are in front of us. Granted, the ability to watch Cool Hand Luke on a television with 3-D capabilities would tickle my fancy as it would appear that I could reach out and grab one of the fifty eggs our hero consumes, but how many more features in electronics do we really need?

The more realistic our distractions from the actual world become, the less we will take part in activities that actually engage ourselves in the world around us. How many times have you noticed a group of people at a restaurant or bar that are all playing on their cell phones? Everybody has gotten too preoccupied with their electronics that human interaction has become second on the list.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying that the constant improvement in technology is a bad thing, just don’t forget to take part in things that doesn’t involve a screen projecting images in front of your face.

A walk outside with a friend is always a healthier decision than watching CBS in 3-D.
