simulator sickness

virtual environment sickness or cybersickness; an adverse reaction to immersion in a 3D virtual environment characterized by symptoms of nausea, motion sickness, disorientation, and loss of control over movement. This reaction is typically explained by sensory conflict theory, the idea that the body reacts when visual and vestibular signals provide conflicting information about the body’s orientation. Vestibular senses are orientation information from the inner ear.
