Virtual reality gaming is becoming more and more popular. There are many benefits to playing virtual games, such as avoiding physical pain, saving on gas money from driving to a location for an experience, and experiencing places you otherwise wouldn’t be able to go without having the time or funds. One downside of this technology is that it can cause motion sickness in some people.
The most common types of motion sickness in VR are simulator sickness and cybersickness. Simulator sickness usually occurs when there’s a mismatch between what your body feels like it should be doing (e.g., walking) but what its actually doing (e.g., sitting), while cybersickness happens when you’re not used to moving around.
