Avoiding simulator sickness
Virtual reality introduces a new set of physiological considerations for design. Like flight simulators used by pilots in training, virtual reality has the potential to present mismatches between physical and visual motion cues. This mismatch can produce nausea known as “simulator sickness,” when your eyes think you’re moving, but your body does not.
Understanding the physiological effects of virtual reality design, and following these guidelines, is critical to making your app a success and ensuring that users avoid simulator sickness.
