With the rise of virtual reality gaming, some people are noticing that systems such as the Oculus Rift can

    cause simulator sickness, which is similar to motion sickness. You can feel dizzy, nauseous and might even vomit.


Make sure your Oculus Rift is properly calibrated for your eyes. Everyone has different eye measurements, whether it’s

     the distance between your eyes or your field of view.

Take the time to calibrate your Rift to your eyes. Improper calibration is the main cause of motion sickness.


If you feel nauseous, eat or drink products containing ginger. This will help combat the nausea. However, you should take

     steps to reduce motion sickness within the Rift itself, including taking frequent breaks.
