Riotous Rugs

New, 1 comment

A study by the psych journal Perception suggests that certain carpets induce nausea. "The carpet image was not moving; the people were not moving, but they reported feelings of self-motion and motion sickness," said one psych professor about participants who looked at a black-and-white patterned rug for five minutes. The same was found in folks who stared at crushed-velvet rugs for five minutes. [MSNBC via AOL Real Estate; previously]
