I spent a lot of my childhood motion sick. Cars, boats, planes, you name it — we just didn’t get along.
But what if the very floor could give you vertigo?
Don’t laugh. It’s happening.
Researchers in Jersey City, New Jersey have found that high contrast black-and-white carpeting is making people sick.
We’re talking headaches. Visual distress. Even seizures in epileptics.
Man…that boat trip is sounding better all the time.
They aren’t exactly sure why a high contrast repeating pattern can give the illusion of motion and make viewers sick. But based on their findings, researchers do recommend that you give carpet more than a quick glance before you make any purchase for your home.
Your home? I think this information is even more important for all the planes, trains, and automobiles out there.
Talk about a double whammy!
