VIRMO: Solution For VR Enthusiasts W/ Virtual Reality Motion Sickness Syndrome
I actually have friends that have severe motion sickness syndrome, who are unable to use a VR headset and enjoy all the VR games… There were times, they even puked on airplanes.
It’s a pity, because I know for sure they would have enjoyed the VR games enormously if they don’t have such severe motion sickness syndrome. VIRMO is a potential solution, each bottle has 30 pills, and two pills is the recommended serving for adults.
2 x VIRMO Pill & 1/2 Hour
According to VIRMO, just drop two pills half an hour before putting on a VR headset, or play VR games at home or in a VR theme park. The effect of the medicine will dramatically decrease nausea, dizziness, stomach sickness, and headaches caused by motion sickness.
“VR Motion Sickness is a massive issue in the evolution of VR technology. The most common symptoms are general discomfort, headache, stomach awareness, nausea, queasiness, vomiting, and dizziness. Virtual reality sickness is different from motion sickness in that it can be caused by the visually-induced perception of self-motion; real self-motion is not needed” Party New York. ( via PSFK )
VIRMO VR Demo To Test VR Motion Sickness Tolerance
VIRMO Team has made two VR demos for people who suspect that they might react to virtual reality motion sickness to test their tolerances. The files are available to download on the official page.
I always had to remind my friends to go take a chill pill when I am fashionably late…. Now I can tell them to go take VIRMO VR pills. We have not try VIRMO, so we can’t really say how well it works, but nevertheless, it’s an interesting idea and potential viable solution!
