Zero Percent Of People Feel Motion Sickness Using Valve's Vive Says Gabe Newell

SAMSUNG CSCI've been struck by motion sickness while using VR before. During a pretty intense firefight in Eve: Valkyrie, I really almost felt like keeling over in my Oculus headset.

According to Valve CEO Gabe Newell, this isn't an issue at all for the Vive. In a piece in the New York Times, Newell confidently stated:

zero percent of people get motion sick

He says this is achieved by a laser system called Lighthouse that accurately reproduces a user's real movements.

This is a very bold claim, but if it's true then Valve have figured out one of the biggest kinks in the road for VR. Add on top of that, the great reception the device is receiving? Things are looking promising.
