Motion sickness or motion sickness chronically affects many people around the world. In Europe, for example, one in three people develops symptoms at least once in their life. And this is something that usually happens during car trips. To counteract this discomfort, Citroën developed the Seetroën, the first glasses to eliminate travel sickness.
Having learned about a solution initially developed for sailors, Citroën decided to extend its use to all people who travel by boat, but also by car, bus or plane, creating these glasses that use the technology Boarding RingTM developed by the French start-up of the same name. This patented and proven paramedic device has a 95% effectiveness rate.
Thanks to the moving liquid found in the rings around the eyes, on the frontal axis (right / left), but also on the sagittal axis (front / back), the glasses recreate the horizon line to resolve the conflict between the senses that causes the problem.
Citroën has entrusted the design to 5.5, a collective design studio in Paris, which has incorporated the brand's codes of freshness, ease and ergonomics. The result: some Glasses with a high-tech look, in white plastic with a soft touch.
THAT'S HOW THEY WORK
-You have to put on the glasses when the first symptoms are noticed.
-After about 10 or 12 minutes, the device allows the mind to resynchronize with the movement perceived by the inner ear, while the eyes remain fixed on a stationary object such as a Smartphone or a book.
-Take off your glasses and enjoy the rest of the trip.
-For adults and children from 10 years old (when the inner ear has finished its growth).
The Seetroën do not have lenses, they can be shared by the whole family and can also be worn on top of other glasses. They can be found in the lifestyle boutique of the brand: lifestyle.citroen.com at a price of 99 euros.
