Valve has apparently broke through and found a solution to the VR motion sickness issue with its headset Vive.


According to Gabe Newell, Valve has solved the issue of nausea associated usually with virtual reality headsets.

Speaking to the New York Times, Gabe Newell said that “zero percent of people get motion sick.”

The reason, according to Newell, is partly due to its Lighthouse technology which tracks the person’s movement and body and translates them into VR.

And given how Valve intends to share this technology with hardware manufactuers, it’s not hard to imagine a VR future free of motion-sickness and nausea.
