Seetroën Glasses Relieve Motion Sickness, Look Ridiculous

 |  |  |  |  |  July 16, 2018


French car maker Citroën is currently working on special glasses designed to help reduce motion sickness for passengers. Apparently, they can eliminate motion sickness while riding in a vehicle. Then you can remove them until your next trip or keep them on because you just can’t get enough ridicule.

Here’s how they supposedly work: They use four liquid-filled rings that simulate an artificial horizon so that the motions of the blue-dyed liquids seen by the wearer’s eyes match what their inner ear is detecting. It’s a fairly simple idea. And you don’t even need to wear the Seetroën glasses for your entire entire trip. Apparently, it takes about 10 to 12 minutes for most users’ brains to cooperate.

Sure, they look silly, but motion sickness is a serious thing for many people. This could help them to function better when in cars and boats and such. It’s unfortunate that these spectacles make people look so silly. If only they had focused more on style.

Citroën say that this approach should cover about 95 percent of the population. The other 5 percent? Guess you need to bring a sick bag.
