Are you sick in virtual reality? HyperJump might heal you


For now, quinedryl will have to do.

As enticing and liberating as virtual reality is, some individuals have an insurmountable problem. They are sick of moving inside the virtual space. This is a well-known conflict between what the eyes and the inner ear send to the brain. If you move smoothly and with the help of controllers in the game, this is probably the worst combination. The eyes clearly see that we are going somewhere, but the inner ear says that in reality nothing like that is happening. The result of the conflict is nausea and a dash for the bucket.

The best solution is, of course, to move around in VR as you would in reality, walking around the room as you please. This is good if you have a room about the size of a hangar and are not limited by cables. The second solution is to move around in VR using teleportation jumps, you simply appear a bit further away, but you’re actually still standing. Well, the most expensive solution consists in buying a specialized VR platform, which you connect to, hang, hook and then you can work completely without restrictions. But the price will be a bit restrictive, for example the Virtuix Omni One device costs two thousand dollars.

Now, smart minds at the Siggraph 2022 tech conference have unveiled a system that should allow even those who have experienced seasickness to move with virtual fluidity. The system is that you have to lean to move. Want forward? So lean in that direction and it works the same way with the other directions.

The inner ear is so happy because some movement is taking place. In addition, HyperJump works in such a way that if you reach a speed that makes you shuffle, it will switch to teleport and play music in the background to alert the user that the jump is coming. And it also shows the way where you are going, so teleportation disorientation is also prevented (sounds like something from a sci-fi movie). It’s definitely an interesting solution, we’ll see if it expands into VR titles.
