Using a cell phone while driving is strictly prohibited. This distraction entails great danger because it implies inattention to what is happening on the road and increases the risk of suffering an accident. However, the rest of the occupants can operate these devices. Another thing is that its use ends up causing dizziness, a discomfort caused by the imbalance between the signals that reach the brain and those received by the ears, the two organs that are responsible for maintaining the stability of our body; That is, the body experiences a dissonance between what it sees and what it feels.

This sensory conflict, technically called motion sickness, happens especially when we travel in the car doing other tasks, such as reading a book or playing with a tablet. The vestibular apparatus notices that there is a displacement but the gaze fixed on one point and the relaxation of the muscles suggests that there is no movement. And to avoid this problem, Apple has announced that it will introduce a specific function in the next update of its operating system.

Thus, iOS18 will prevent iPhone and iPad users from getting motion sickness when handling it during trips. To do this, it will use the Vehicle Motion Cues function, which avoids the aforementioned sensory conflict with the use of visual elements on the screen that indicate changes in movement in real time. When activated, black dots appear on the side edges of the screen that move at the pace of the car without interfering with the viewing of the main content in the image. According to the company, this resource could help users read and play more comfortably while traveling.

Using sensors built into iPhone and iPad, Vehicle Motion Cues recognizes when a user is in a moving vehicle and responds accordingly. The feature can be set to display automatically on the iPhone, or it can be turned on and off in Control Center.

But until this new functionality arrives, we must look for alternatives that help avoid dizziness. Also for those people who do not have any Apple devices. Obviously, it is best not to do any activity while traveling and keep your eyes focused forward, on the horizon. You can also use specific drugs, such as biodramine, or purchase peculiar anti-dizziness glasses.

About six years ago, Citroën launched the original Seetroën, designed with Boarding Ring technology, developed by the French start-up of the same name. Its frame is characterized by having four rings (two front and the same number on the sides) filled with a colored liquid that, through its movement, allows the horizon line to be recreated. Since they do not have lenses, they can be used on top of other glasses and can be shared with other people.
