Toshiba Echoes Nintendo's 3-D Warning

On the heels of a warning by Nintendo about the possible negative impact on young children from viewing 3-D images, Toshiba said it is following an electronics industry consortium’s recommendations by issuing a similar warning for its glasses-free 3-D television.
