Stoffregen links Apple's iOS 7 and motion sickness

Professor of kinesiology Dr. Thomas A. Stoffregen and director of the Affordance Perception-Action Laboratory (APAL) was quoted in the Live Science article, "Is iOS 7 Making You Feel Sick? Here's Why."

Stoffregen, one of the experts, said that he was not surprised that many people using iOS 7 were feeling motion sickness and added, "As imaging technology develops across platforms, and we get greater frame rates and resolution, we find an increasing tendency for it to make people sick."

Stoffregen also remarked on motion sickness in the article, "Apple Inc's iOS 7 Users Report Motion Sickness After Prolonged Use of iOS 7 iPhone, iPad; How to Reduce Parallax Effect," an article featured in International Business Times. He explains that motion sickness may become worse as people continue to use digital devices.
