MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (KFGO AM) -- New research from the University of Minnesota finds a link between playing video games on an iPad and motion sickness.

U of M kinesiology professor Tom Stoffregen says they had 36 undergraduate participants play "Call of Duty: Modern Combat 3".

Stoffregen says overall 31 percent of the students reported feeling sick after playing.

Half played the game in "tilt control" mode and other half played "touch" mode, and he says the ones who used "touch" mode were five times as likely to get motion sickness.
