Let’s play with reality… Virtual reality that is.
Bratlett has dusted off our old Vive development headset and it got us thinking about how the technology is going to be used (or is being used as the case may be)… Gaming seems to get all the attention when it comes to VR right now, but that is about to change… possibly quite a lot!

But how does Virtual Reality work… and why does it make me and 4 out of 10 people on average, feel motion sickness!?
Here’s a couple of videos on how to beat motion sickness…all of which I’m going to have to give a go if I’m going to try this again!
