MOTION SICKNESS / SIMULATOR SICKNESS
When creating VR projects, consider the motion sickness (simulator sickness) and think about how to avoid causing it.
Information about motion sickness in VR can can be found online. Here are a few web pages with such information:
MOVEMENT IN VR
When designing how the player can move over a distance, try to do it in a way that minimizes the risk of motion sickness.
How are different angles of perspective handled in a natural, pleasant way. If used, how is a movement over a longer distance handled in the experience? How is it done in an appropriate way to avoid triggering motion sickness?
Generally speaking, there exist three alternatives to move over a distance in VR:
1. Locked: The viewer moves physically within a defined area (eg. 2×2 meters) and perhaps jumps to other nearby locations by using “teleportation”.
2. On rails: The viewer moves forward automatically, as a passenger, on a set path without the possibility to significantly influence the direction of the journey.
3. Cockpit: The viewer can, with some mode of transportation, actively control the direction of the travel in the experience, e.g. like a pilot in an airplane.
