Would you wear these motion sickness glasses?

posted by Sarah Jacobs - 

Engineers in France have invented a new type of glasses that promise to cure your motion sickness.  The only trade-off is you'll have to sit in traffic looking like a futuristic Where's Waldo for about 10 minutes. 

The frames don't have lenses.  Instead, there's just a blue liquid sloshing around in the lower half of the rims. It helps by mimicking what's happening with the fluid in your inner ear, which plays a big part in your sense of balance. 

Motion sickness happens when your brain gets conflicting information from your eyes and inner ears.  So the idea is that being able to see the liquid moving around in the rims helps your brain make sense of everything.

But instead of just one frame in front of each eye, there's also a frame on each side to catch your peripheral vision. The only downside is that they're really not cute.

If you have really bad motion sickness, you probably won't care about looking cute, though.  And they claim you only have to wear them for 10 to 12 minutes before they work. 

Unfortunately, they've already sold out until at least September.  But you might be able to pre-order them for $115 on Citroen.com
