A survey about VR sickness and gender
Several months ago, VR Heaven — a blog that we, Aaron Santiago (VR software engineer) and Winston Nguyen (VR marketer), run — posted an informal survey on Reddit asking participants how often they experienced VR motion sickness and their gender. If you took into account those factors, the discrepancy in VR sickness should disappear, meaning VR doesn’t have anything to do with gender-related motion sickness. After taking into account people’s susceptibility to general motion sickness, we still found a correlation between VR motion sickness and gender:So what is it about VR that plays a factor in sex and motion sickness? We collected data about VR legs, asking participants if they were able to overcome VR motion sickness. More than two-thirds of all participants who experienced VR sickness were able to grow their VR legs.
