Cybersickness, a syndrome resulting from exposure to virtual reality displays, raises ethical and liability issues. We have found that, contrary to the majority of previous reports in the literature, cybersickness can be induced by desktop virtual real-ity. Moreover, our findings suggest that some individuals susceptible to cybersickness can be screened out on the basis of their self-reported susceptibility to motion sickness.
