Researchers at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) have developed the first open-source Unity software toolkit that developers can use to incorporate techniques to reduce cybersickness (virtual reality/VR motion sickness) into extended reality environments.
The GingerVR toolkit can be applied to any Unity application.
Said UTSA's John Quarles, "Cybersickness is a threat to the overall user acceptance of VR, which has a potentially huge impact on the VR industry. The negative symptoms experienced by a user can decrease human performance, limit learning, and hinder decision making."
Research indicates more than half of VR users experience motion-sickness symptoms with a wide range of severity.
GingerVR incorporates eight cybersickness reduction techniques with tutorials to help with integration.
