I Am Stereoblind, But the 3DS Lets Me See the World as Others See It
I cried the first time I held a Nintendo 3DS. The experience was a revelation that I’ll not soon forget, and even if everyone stopped making games for it tomorrow, my blue 3DS XL is not going anywhere. That little machine is a window into a part of human experience that most people take for granted, but which is otherwise inaccessible to me.
Pretty fascinating to think about being stereoblind in the first place, much less achieving awareness of an extra dimension from a $200 plastic gadget.
