Compensatory Presentation of Moving Illusion Snchronized with Eye Movement


Our system enables control of imagery rotation synchronized with eye movement. Conventional methods have considerable limitations to apply Augmented Reality (AR) or image projection because experiments about moving optical illusions have been conducted in the constraints like fixation of guidance of eyes. However, with our method, the appropriate performance of compensation with this system can significantly decrease the intensity of Rotating Snakes illusion even without eye fixation or guidance. The system has the potential to apply AR display which has a dynamic image compensation system synchronized with eye movements in order to correct perceptual “distortion”.
