NoMotion is an app that dramatically reduces the symptoms of motion sickness associated with traveling by boat, plane or car. About one third of people are susceptible to motion sickness, even in mild circumstances such as being on a boat in calm water or flying in an airplane. Medication is expensive and has side-effects such as drowsiness. By using 3 types of bio-feedback (audio and visual) NoMotion has proven to be just as effective as over the counter medicine. I believe this app is going to make history once launched, and we need your help to get us there.
How to use it:
How it works:
The cause of motion sickness:
Normally,when you move around, changes in your inner ear (vestibular system) match up with what you’re seeing. However, when you are traveling (in an airplane, boat or car) your inner ear signals that you’re moving, but your eyes say that you’re sitting still. These conflicting signals to the brain cause motion sickness.
How NoMotion corrects this problem:
NoMotion uses three different forms of bio-feedback to correct the signal conflicts caused by traveling. A virtual horizon simulates an environment that matches the signals from your inner ear to those of your eyes. A secondary bio-feedback audio pitch modulation (BFAPM) signal locks on and affirms this visual signal. After some training (an average of 40 mins) users may choose to rely solely on the audio signal to correct the inner ear signals. A third bio-feedback audio stereo modulation (BFASM) signal adds a further benefit when the app is used whilst wearing headphones.

Why Should You Back This App?
It's a great app. With 33% of the population suffering from travel sickness, NoMotion will make a difference in peoples lives. It also means we have a massive potential market to tap. Above all, you can be part of history in the making.
All investors of any level will be forever appreciated.
We also need more beta testers to test the release candidate of NoMotion. Any person (even if you don't back the app) who suffers from motion sickness and owns an iPhone or iPad should apply. If you are interrested, please sign up with testflightapp at this link: http://tflig.ht/Ry18sr
The current state of the software is ready for the app store so please comment on any improvements and report any and all bugs. Don’t forget to register your device with testflight.
What Will The Money Be Used For?
App development is almost done. The release candidate (RC) is currently being tested by beta testers. We need a decent budget to launch a massive campaign. We need to capture the market before copies of the program starts to surface. Help us achieve our $10k marketing budget.
Whether you back us or not..if you know someone suffering from travel sickness..please tell them about NoMotion.
