Good news, but in fairness it could easily mean that the experiences used in this VR test were not well designed. A lot of the time the nausea is caused by this.

Are you saying nausea is caused by a well designed experience or a not well designed one? I would assume you mean a not well designed one.

sonicwrecks1730d ago

Yup that was supposed to be not well designed. Ammeded.

How a person going to react will totally depend on the mental state of the person and as per my understanding it will vary from person to person for sure.

Wasn't this the plot to Lawnmower Man?

So did he sleep with the VR headset on or...? I guess this was just an elaborate idea to try and convince people you won't feel sick after prolonged use, but it's really just advocating prolonged use, which doesn't seem too good.

I have this weird feeling you didn't read the article...

A panic attack around the 25-hour mark?

gizmig1729d ago (Edited 1729d ago )

Might be true. We never know what will be the after effects of this thing on a different person. Next 24 hours must be crucial.


Will it be for sure an attack is going to come? And if it comes that is too dangerous.

gizmig1729d ago

Well we all are just assuming as it will surely affect different persons differently and maybe it will depend on the state of mind of a particular person too.

Yeah, I didn't fully read one article. At least I didn't pull an Extremetech move and not read 182 comments worth of articles.
