As countless schools across the United States, Canada and Europe have closed, they have launched online classes. Many companies are also holding online meetings during this period to continue their operations.
The unprecedented amount of online learning and work can also cause problems for some. Students and employees often communicate online via mobile phones, iPads, and computers, which can lead to nausea and even vomiting after extensive screen time, this phenomenon is called cyber sickness.
Cyber sickness is similar to motion sickness. The principle is the same as VR Sickness, resulting from a conflict between vision and proprioception. The eyes move frequently to track objects on the screen, but the cochlea does not sense any motion. The contradicting sensory signals stimulate the body’s nausea and vomiting reaction.
