Citroen’s Seetroen Glasses to Fight Motion Sickness on Sale for 99 EUR

Motion sickness is one of the most common problems encountered by travelers regardless of their means of transportation. And although it can manifest itself in a number of ways, it is caused by only one factor: the fact that the body senses one thing and the eye perceives another.

Usually, people tend to treat the symptoms of motion sickness by using various pills or even bags to breathe in. And despite our current advanced technology, very few, if any, are capable of saying they invented one cure for motion sickness.

Back in July, French carmaker Citroen announced it just might have become the company that solved the problem for all. They introduced the Seetroen, a weirdly-shaped pair of glasses with no lenses meant for adults and children over the age of ten.

The glasses feature a ring half filled with a colored liquid. The ring surrounds the eyes both along the frontal axis (right / left) and sagittal axis (front/back) so that when it oscillates, it tricks the eye into believing it is seeing the horizon.

The makers of the gadget, Boarding Ring, say the glasses should be placed over the eyes as soon as motion sickness kicks in. It takes about 10 to 12 minutes for the mind to start believing the trick and then they can be removed.

Because they have no lens, they can be worn over prescription glasses.

The innovation is now on sale on Citroen’s lifestyle website for 99 EUR. If you are among those suffering from motion sickness, you ought to have a closer look at the Seetroen, as its makers claim it has an efficiency rating of 95 percent.

According to various studies, motion sickness, or kinetosis as it is also known, affects at one point or another during their lives about 80 percent of the general population.
