Reducing yaw

Yaw is motion (typically in a vehicle) around the vertical axis, turning left or right. In VR applications, this movement is typically controlled by the user's head. But in some cases, designers have translated control of the yaw to an analog stick, keyboard, or other controller input. This is one of the quickest ways to make your user sick. If 360° freedom is needed, we often have the user stand or sit in a swivel chair.
