Funny Looking Glasses That Allegedly Eliminate Motion Sickness

July 16, 2018

This is a commercial for the $115 Seetroën glasses coming soon from car maker Citroën. They can allegedly eliminate motion sickness after ten minutes of wear in a vehicle, at which point they can be removed until your next trip or kept on in case you want to keep looking the coolest.

The Seetroën glasses have four liquid-filled rings that, thanks to gravity, simulate the angle and movements of the horizon so that the motions of the blue-dyed liquids seen by the wearer's eyes match what their inner ear is detecting.

Thankfully, Citroën says, passengers don't need to wear the Seetroën glasses for their entire trip. Once they put them on and stare at an unmoving object, like a smartphone or a book, it takes about 10 to 12 minutes for the brain to resolve its feeling of confusion and nausea. For roughly 95 percent of the population, that should be all that's needed to eliminate motion sickness until the next time they climb into a vehicle.

Fascinating. I went on a cruise once and I got crazy motion sickness. "No, you got too drunk." IT WAS THE MOTION OF THE OCEAN. "You had twelve rum runners." I don't even like rum. "Why were you drinking it then?" It makes me feel sexy and talk with an exotic accent that's irresistible to the ladies. "What ladies, there was nothing but unattractive 80 year olds." Not after twelve rum runners.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Leslie P, who agrees the key to eliminating motion sickness for good is never leaving the house.

    Now patiently wait for someone to make a knock-off pair for $20…

    Early adopters always get screwed. I wonder if they work on a roller coaster.

  • bakuryu

    Now made a pair working for jet fighter pilots! g-loc is a bitch.

  • JJtoob

    This isn't built into their helmet's HUD?

  • bakuryu

    Don't know,but I was joking: g-loc is not so simple to resolve.

  • Jenness

    I was just wondering if these would work on a cruise - great minds think alike GW.

  • Fartbutt

    Or just attach a clear liquid ball to your regular glasses and dye the water blue. Then you'd really look cool

  • TheQiwiMan

    Well, at least they don't make you look completely retarded while wearing them!

  • jimmycleaver

    Those are some nice lookin' next gen Waldo glasses right there.

  • Frédéric Purenne

    I've been called four eyes before, so I guess those offer novelty in being called six eyes... I'm gonna go cry in a corner to manage the PTSD now.

  • Meh

    Or just take one of those pills?

  • JJtoob

    The red pill or the blue pill?

  • Ez

    The only thing those pills do is put you to sleep.
    Granted, you're not throwing up while you're asleep.

  • Mr. Roboto

    Vomit in public, or wear these hideous things...it's honestly a toss up.
