3 tips to prevent motion sickness in VR

Motion sickness, also called motion sickness, you get in the car, on the plane or on a boat. Motion sickness when using virtual reality glasses also fits into that list at home. You experience it during intense games or when playing simulators. The feeling can vary from nausea to dizziness. In this article you will find 3 tips to prevent motion sickness in VR.

Tip 1: Ensure the correct specifications

Correct specs

The prevention of motion sickness starts with the use of suitable hardware. A screen with a minimum refresh rate of 90 Hz and a video card that never goes below 90 frames per second is necessary to display smooth images. The VR glasses you use needs accurate sensors to translate your movements 1 to 1 into the virtual world. For smartphone VR it is important that your smartphone has a gyroscope.

Tip 2: Train your brain

Training the brain

Do you get the feeling of nausea or dizziness during your VR session? Stop immediately and put away the VR gear. In this way you prevent your brain from linking the smell and feeling of the VR gear to the feeling of motion sickness. Stop using the VR gear just before you experience nausea or dizziness and slowly build up your tolerance.

Tip 3: Choose your game carefully

VR games

Not every VR game or experience takes it as closely with the pursuit of a continuous 90 frames per second experience. Crashes in the image confuse the brain because it only happens visually. The rest of your body just continues. If you are particularly sensitive to motion sickness, it's a good idea to choose a game with teleportation used for movement.
