Observing Virtual Avatars: The Impact of Avatars' Fidelity on Identifying Interactions

Florian Mathis, Kami Vaniea, Mohamed Khamis
2021 Academic Mindtrek 2021  
Figure 1 : We investigate the impact of an avatar's fidelity on a bystander's performance when identifying the avatar's touch, mid-air, and eye gaze gestures.  ...  We use touch, mid-air, and eye gaze gestures performed by a human in the real world (➊) as our baseline.  ...  This publication was supported by the University of Edinburgh and the University of Glasgow jointly funded PhD studentships.  ...

The Potential of Biophilic Fractal Designs to Promote Health and Performance: A Review of Experiments and Applications

Richard P. Taylor
2021 Sustainability  
The "fractal fluency" model states that human vision has adapted to process these mid-range fractals with ease.  ...  Their repetition of patterns at increasingly fine magnifications creates a rich complexity. Fractals displaying mid-range complexity are the most common and include trees, clouds, and mountains.  ...  Conflicts of Interest: The author declares no conflict of interest.  ...
