Dizzy, I’m so Dizzy….


Teavee sent me this wonderful video showing a camera on a hula-hoop…..

So, here is the question – did it make you feel sick?

    First! Mesmerized, yes. Sick, no.

  2. lehcyfer says:

    A fleeting feeling of dizziness for a moment at the end – when the vision turned 90 degree to the right . No sick feeling.

  3. Another Richard says:

    Yes I did start to feel sick pretty quickly so I looked away but I do suffer from Meniere’s disease and that my be the reason.

  4. Sari1967 says:

    No but it may be because you can concentrate on the person hoola hooping rather than the rotating scenery.

  5. I get motion sickness from any video with such a low frame rate, doesn’t matter what it’s showing!

  6. nanda says:

    nothing happen to me

  7. JohnF says:

    No sickness, but highly fascinated in watching the relative motion of the hula-hooper compared to how we normally see such movement.

  8. David Sledge says:

    It left me slightly giddy, I don’t think I really wanted it to go on any longer.

  9. Nadia says:

    That’s interesting; from the hoop’s perspective, the girl twists around inside it, slowly moving around the circumference.

  10. Gregor says:

    What i found interesting was i didn’t realise that it took so long for one certain part of the hoop to make contact with the person again. When you see someone hula, because it goes round so fast you presume that each part of the hula hoop makes contact more frequently.
    Nice to see from the hoops perspective.

  11. Greg23 says:

    Not what I would have expected. Very smooth. No motion sickness and I am susceptible to motion sickness at times.

  12. Jenny says:

    I get motion sick pretty easily, so I had to look away after a few seconds.

    I think it’s interesting that watching something like this causes dizziness. Nothing is physically happening to me, so my sense of balance is only disturbed through visual data. Yet even if I have the window tiny, so it’s only a very small part of my field of view, I still get dizzy for a while after watching it.

  14. Ken Haley says:

    It was amazingly different from what I was expecting. I thought I’d notice more in-out movement. But no, I didn’t feel sick or dizzy.

  15. The Pick Man says:

    It made me feel quite queasy.

  16. Anonymous says:

    Yes I felt sick had to turn it off

  17. Marion says:

    Didn’t feel sick at all, but like some other people I was focused on the girl doing the hula hooping!

  18. Dee says:

    I felt fine until the very end which made me slightly dizzy

  19. Janeo says:

    Didn’t feel dizzy or sick. Struck by the elegance of the movements

  20. Theart says:

    Not at all – Before watching it I thought that the go-pro might be too heavy – love the visuals – cool idea!
