He says visual cues play a major role which includes keeping an eye on the principal of stereopsis which reduces the load of the brains towards vergence and not overlooking lights, textures in and shadow. Not only that, non-visual cues like Kinesthetics, Vestibular and Proprioception also are the receptors of the VR content. Since visual and non-visual cues both constitute the reactions to VR content, therefore, the user might nauseate. Since the consumption of the VR content connects and engages all the stimuli points of the human body, therefore, the investment of the VR content will provide a huge return-value in years to come.
