I was thinking the leap from altitude sickness to motion sickness might not be that large. I hear you on the data centers, some of the interesting ones are underground not up in the air :)

The TALOS project is well along MIT also has an interesting future soldier initiative. Technologies for survivability certainly are the right priority for Army research.

It isn't anti-motion sickness, it is altitude sickness. Not the same thing. Also, the app just predicts when it will occur, it doesn't do anything about it.

That would have a very limited and minimal impact on the non-military world. Unless people start building datacenters up high ;-)

As someone who has eaten her share of military-quality food, I promise, no one is lining up. Except maybe for the freeze-dried strawberries.

But anti motion-sickness software on a smartwatch could appeal to many people.

Not sure I see the rest of the world lining up for military-quality food.
