OriginEdit

Nadar, born Gaspard-Félix Tournachon, was a French photographer who became the first person to take aerial photographs. His adventures flying in a hot air balloon inspired several Jules Vernes’ story elements. Taking many photographs of writers and politicians, some of his self-portraits feature his hobby, ballooning. One in particular has been animated and features Nadar revolving around in a circle.

EffectsEdit

Causes objects and people to rapidly rotate around their center of mass. The object must touch the basket and then be given an initial spin. Afterwards, the object will remain upright and rotate indefinitely until stopped by a cushioning or adhesive force. The user will experience intense motion sickness whenever they stop moving.
