Primates -and in particular humans -are very sensitive to the eye direction of congeners. Estimation of gaze of others is one of the basic skills for estimating goals, intentions and desires of social agents, whether they are humans or avatars. When building robots, one should not only supply them with gaze trackers but also check for the readability of their own gaze by human partners. We conducted experiments that demonstrate the strong impact of the iris size and the position of the eyelids
