You might have felt a sort of dizziness while staring at cloths featuring intermittent black and white patterns. Have you ever thought why it is so? Now, researchers at St. Peter’s college in Jersey City have found out that black and white patterned rugs can cause dizziness.
This could eventually lead to a condition called seasickness.
This dizziness is a regular experience, but it is for the first time that researchers have come out with an explanation for this phenomena.
The result was published in an academic journal Perception.
Though they were not able to nail the exact villain behind this sick feeling, high contrast between colors and repeating patterns are included in the list of possible culprits.
Most times the sick feeling persist for fairly long time, which eventually causes seasickness or motion sickness.
Now, you get another excuse to dump your old, but usable garment, with the help of scientific evidence. This new finding has got huge business implications as well.
