Digital avatars gets human-like eye movements
William Steptoe of University College London got his research on using eye tracking to give digital avatars human-like eye movements covered in an article by New Scientist. It turns out that "on average, the participants were able to identify 88 per cent of truths correctly when the avatars had eye movement, but only 70 per cent without. Spotting lies was harder, but eye movement helped: 48 per cent accuracy compared with 39 per cent without. Steptoe will present the results at the 2010 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems in Atlanta, Georgia, next week."
