‘Address is Approximate’ is Appropriate

Watching this video in the togethertube Sunday Matinee reminded me of one of the issues associated with VR, and the clever attempts to try to overcome it. VR sickness!  Similar to motion sickness. Before VR can achieve high-levels of adoption, one thing it will have to address is the variety of responses to rapidly moving fields of view, when the actual user is stationary.

The animation of the screen, together with the items moving in the periphery of the screen user’s vision in the video, reminded me that Microsoft are actively using a similar technique using lights surrounding the lenses of the VR headset (http://arstechnica.co.uk/gaming/2016/05/vr-nausea-side-mounted-leds-microsoft-research/). Very clever indeed
