Cybersickness is an uncomfortable side effect experienced by users of immersive interfaces commonly used for Virtual Reality. It is associated with symptoms such as nausea, postural instability, disorientation, headaches, eye-strain, and tiredness.
Cybersickness is a relatively common, unwanted side effect of immersive interfaces that causes a broad range of unpleasant symptoms such as nausea, headaches, disorientation, and tiredness. More serious symptoms, such as postural instability, although less common, can also result from prolonged exposure to virtual interfaces.
Cybersickness is typically experienced by stationary users that perceive that they are moving in a virtual scene. This stationary reality and the associated compelling experience of self-motion is believed to underlie the condition (Webb and Griffin 2003). By contrast, simulator sickness was first found in pilots who underwent extended training in flight simulators...
