There are various technical aspects of virtual reality that can induce sickness, such as mismatched motion, field of vision, motion parallax, and viewing angle. Additionally, the amount of time spent in virtual reality increases the presence of symptoms. VR companies are working hard to resolve this issue, but until then, we have developed the antidote VIRMO. Take the appropriate dosage 1/2 hours before putting on your VR headset or when you experience symptoms, to help prevent or relieve nausea and vomiting associated with virtual reality motion sickness.
This project is a satire on the rapid advancement of modern technology and entertainment. The need for “new and innovative” experiences has exceeded the need to design “human-friendly” products. This has started to result in generating new symptoms such as the virtual reality motion sickness. A great example of how people are willing to sacrifice their health for pleasure. VIRMO is exhibited at NEW INC‘s Showcase 2015 and Usagi NY Gallery‘s opening exhibition “Infinite White”.
