Cybersickness in Virtual Reality (VR) is a serious issue affecting the overall experience. Many research papers have investigated the causes of cybersickness and offered potential solutions for reducing cybersickness. In this paper, we demonstrate a method to reduce cybersickness by using a novel rendering technique in the virtual environment (VE)- Dynamic Mono-Stereoscopic Rendering System (DMSRS). The DMSRS system uses two different cameras to create a hybrid rendering that includes monoscopic and stereoscopic systems. By default, VEs are rendered using stereoscopic or monoscopic rendering exclusively. The results indicate that cybersickness decreased amongst users with little to no VR experience hindered when using the DMSRS.
