They should offer those for free at the exit of Forbidden Journey in Universal Studios - Orlando.

And $115?  If you are prone to motion sickness and that fixes it after 10 minutes, it's well goddamn worth it if it actually works.  One tiny bout of motion sickness and you feel "blah" for the remainder of the day.

That's kinda clever, if they work.

I could see some kind of rental business model, like on ferries.

Looks like something Elton John would have worn in his cocaine days.

Extra thoughtful of Giz to conclude that I'm interested in vomit and display a number of vomit-related stories at the bottom. I can't wait to see what shows up in my Google ads now.

When they cross reference that with your PornHub searches.  You're in for a wild ride.

I got motion sickness while watching "The Blair Witch Project." Had to run to the back exit and puke outside.

Story about the phenomenon

Interesting and perhaps too expensive  and while i do not suffer from motion sickness , if i did i doubt these would do me any good as i wear glasses.

All the hipsters in Portland will start wearing them.

grimlock1972: while i do not suffer from motion sickness


The sea just hasn't found you yet.  There is a sea state with your name on it.  Waiting.

See, I used to think that, too.  Used to.  Then I spent ~72 hours alternating between puking my guts out over the rail, and driving while puking my guts out over the rail.  Didn't resolve until someone on the crew said, "drink this, or < only guy on the crew close to my size > is going to hold you down while I cram something up your ass."

Don't know if the glasses work, but if they hit the market with good reviews, $100+ is _cheap_ to avoid ever feeling that way again.  "Praying for the release of death" is used so casually by so many, who don't really understand when they might _mean_ it.

Worst thing is, once my confidence about "well, I don't get seasick" was broken, it takes a -lot- less to start feeling queasy.  Ugh.

So, yeah, I might have to grab a pair of those goofy looking things.

Don't care about cars or trains but if they work on boats $115 and looking like a complete fool is worth the price.

I get motion sick when trying to play Portal or Portal 2. I have no idea why it's only those games. I can play other first person perspective games just fine.

With the way the portals work you can get not only an up-down flip but a twist as the player character orients. I don't get motion sickness but when you're bouncing from one portal to the other in the game, it can get hard to keep track of up and down.

No shiat.  I've gotten sea sick on my own damn boat 50 yards from shore in the bay in 3' of water (I jumped out of the damn boat and wade fished).  The worst I ever had it was out in the gulf in a 23' cabin cruiser tied off to farking oil rigs.  I didn't think it was possible for a human to have bouts of heaving so often.  I was waiting on my spleen to fly out.

If these glasses actually work, I'm going to be the goofiest looking fisherman on the water.
