My Favorite Conference Talk So Far

I’m away at a conference for the first part of this week, which is why I haven’t been posting and why Misty has been going just a little bit crazy. For your entertainment, I give you my favorite conference talk so far, judging on title alone:

Cybersickness determines the affective appraisal of a virtual environment.

Sadly, the talk is taking place after I leave. I’m pretty sure I know what the authors are aiming at, but I’m curious to hear what y’all think the talk would be about. Bonus points for the most creative misreading.

  1. So… what?

    A virtual environment (WoW, 2nd Life, a FPS map, etc.) is only as immersive as how much it gives you motion sickness?

    That doesn’t bode well for someone who can’t ride in the backseat of a car for longer than 15 minutes without needing to pull over.

    (No, seriously, what are they really talking about?)

  2. I believe he’s saying that, if you’ve got the equivalent of seasickness from being in a virtual environment, you’ll think the environment isn’t that good.
