has the consumer market really thought about using them as sunglasses?
what if those bright televisions are using UV light to excite the polorized plate.. just like a flourescent poster in a black light.. and you want to use the glasses as sunglasses?
if there is any truth to that, you might not be burning your eyes as bad.. because the polorized plates would block more light than they let in.
and well.. now you see who is to blame when the glasses are making the picture look darker.
to say that those glasses would light up like a black light poster behind the polarized plate.. .
the light in front of the plate would also be significantly reduced, and that would amount to a reduction of the extremely bright light from the sun.
and the light from the plate is probably not as bright.
i have worn 3d glasses from the movie theater as some sunglasses for fun, and i do believe the light let through is lower than without 'em.
but come again,
because UV light isnt really typically seen.
if you have a good look, you might realize that the light you see from the 3d glasses is like the highest sound from a tweeter.
but if you come this far, you should realize that it would be perfectly possible that a light you cant see emit any luminance can actually cause 2nd degree burns on your skin from some monstor hobby scientist who has such a light.
'atmospheric light' is just that.. atmosphere.
lots of UV light in the ambience of the area.
that light should come through like a very sheer white.. or white-ish grey.
the rest.. well you wouldnt see it at all.
your eyes would burn and they would be damaged without ever seeing a clue.
i know it is fun and cute to play.. but the violence with those glasses are invisible.
you might not notice in 30 years.. but you might hate yourself for it in 50 or 60 years.
