Samsung Headphones Fool The Brain Into Thinking You’re Actually Moving In VR

If you have stayed away from virtual reality headsets because you couldn’t stand terrible motion sickness, it’s time to give them another try. Samsung has devised a pair of headphones that, when used alongside their VR gear, synchronize the body’s balance system, eliminating that obnoxious sensation.

The Entrim 4D has the ability to send electrical signals to the brain that fool it into thinking you’re actually moving in the real world (even if you’re just flying or driving a car in a VR game). Users are thus able not to just see another world but get into the action and feel the changes in motion. To others, you might be giving your arms and neck a full workout on no music but you will feel like the main actor in a video game.

Entrim 4D is in project stage right now, preparing to be presented at  SXSW 2016 festival but Samsung is optimistic that, in the future, it will replace full-motion chairs and will have rotational motion detaction.
