Beat travel sickness blues

If you know someone who suffers from travel sickness these could the miracle you’re looking for.

Made by Citroen and not surprisingly called Seetroën glasses, they are the first glasses to actually eliminate travel sickness.

They proved so popular after their launch in July, 2018, that Citroën sold 15,000 pairs in the space of a few months.

Now they’re launching a second limited edition model (to 1,919 pairs, Citroën’s 100th birthday year), called the Seetroën S19.

The glasses make their debut at the VivaTech show, a global innovation event held from 16 to 18 May at the Paris Expo exhibition centre at Porte de Versailles.

The Seetroën S19 glasses work on the same principle as the original model, by recreating the horizon line through a coloured liquid to resolve a conflict of the senses.

The glasses do not contain lenses, so they can be shared with all travelling companions. Users simply put them on for 10 to 12 minutes when the initial symptoms appear.

As with the initial model, Seetroën S19 glasses were developed with start-up company Boarding Ring and the design studio 5.5. With more and more time spent reading on smartphones and tablets, travel sickness affects children and adults alike, and not just in cars, but boats, buses and other means of transport.

Both models are now available to buy at Citroën’s lifestyle e-boutique, priced at 99 euros.
