Don't worry Lolpop... You're not alone. ::)

I was never one to become motion sick but seeing all these testimonies about the Oculus I'm kinda curious right now. I've flown in one of these (see picture below) more than once (and it was also my first time flying) the pilot always took it to the limit and I never got sick. But it seems the Oculus create a much "intense" experience to the brain. Maybe too intense?...  :o

It would be the ultimate troll if that new avatar was actually your mouth....



Anyway. New implementation of this technology is bound to have some issues especially as it is still in development. I have my fingers crossed that the motion sickness can be overcome by additional development. I'd like to see this technology grow and not have the Oculus become vaporware.
No matter how nice I ask random people, nobody will take me to Funkytown.

The disconnect between what you're seeing and what your inner ear is feeling is the issue. It's a hard thing to overcome, but it is true that the more you experience it the more you will get used to it.

I don't think some understand the degree to which your brain ties the two sensory inputs together. Every micro movement of your head, turning it slightly, adjusting it up and down while viewing the top and bottom of your screen, or scanning side to side, is tied to what your eyes are doing. When you separate the two, it's akin to someone removing an appendage - it is literally that strong of a sensation.
I swear to god I will bring forth a rage so complete in it's fury that your innards would boil from the sheer amount of energy pouring from your monitor.

Rook said everything that can be said.
