This study explores ways to increase comfort in Virtual Reality by minimizing cybersickness. Cybersickness is related to classical motion sickness and causes unwanted symptoms when using immersive technologies. We developed a dial interface to accurately capture momentary user cybersickness and feed this information back to the user. Using a seated VR roller coaster environment, we found that the dial is significantly positively correlated with post-immersion questionnaires and is a valid tool compared to verbal rating approaches.
