In daily life, stereoscopic image technology, such as 3D TV and movies, has become used in various places. Images, not limited to stereoscopic images, may exhibit unfavorable biological effects depending on the viewing and physical conditions, age, and individual differences. In our previous study, an increase was indicated in the sway values that were observed while/after peripheral viewing a stereoscopic video clip. Backgrounds are considered to affect our balance function. We examine the effect of the exposure to stereoscopic video clips without the background on our equilibrium function paper, and fifteen healthy young males voluntarily participated in the present study. Their stabilograms were recorded during monocular vision or binocular parallax vision using semipermeable smart glasses, where the subjects maintained the Romberg posture in stabilometry. We also measured the body sway with the subjects’ eyes closed 0–3 min after the exposure to the video clips. We herein compare the temporal averaged potential functions to control the standing posture during the exposure to 2D/3D video clips with those after the exposure.
