The co-founder of Oculus, who hopes that motion sickness will be resolved in the coming years, will share his proposal at the end of the year.
Palmer Luckeyco-founder and former member of Oculus, shared through Twitter a series of predictions about virtual reality for the next 5 years, one of them being the resolution of the problem of dizziness, the so-called “motion sickness” that affects multiple users. In fact, Palmer responded to a user that he himself is working on a solution to this problem of dizziness. Without going into details, he points out that his method is not a walker nor does it use galvanic vestibular stimulation (GVS). It just shares that it is a mixed solution of software and hardware, although it is possible that by the end of the year we will know more, since it intends to make open source your design.
Next five years:
1) Universal solution for vestibulo-oculular mismatch in virtual reality
2) Superhuman sensory perception / reaction for a handful of people
3) Predictive analytics indistinguishable from time travel in some cases
4) Air taxi
5) 0 to 60 in 0.8 seconds

Palmer works on the first option, a universal solution to the problem of desynchronization of visual and vestibular sense in virtual reality.
Hardware and software. I am aiming to open-source the design later this year. Not aware of anyone else working on this branch of the problem.

“My goal is for the design to be open source by the end of this year. I don’t know anyone else who works on this branch of the problem,” Palmer says.
Since the advent of commercial VR, multiple systems have arrived to try to solve this problem, many of them being walkers, new methods of locomotion and techniques of galvanic vestibular stimulation. Will Palmer’s technology solve the situation? It is possible that in the coming months we will learn more about it.
