      We aimed to investigate the effects of motion pattern and hand shape on social impressions of a massage robot. The experiment was performed in a virtual environment as an exploratory study. Participants observed a massage ...
    • First Contact - Take 2 Using XR to Overcome Intercultural Discomfort (racism) 

      Gunn, M. J.; Sasikumar, P.; Bai, H. (The Eurographics Association, 2020)

      Nagamachi, Kazuya; Kato, Yuki; Sugimoto, Maki; Inami, Masahiko; Kitazaki, Michiteru (The Eurographics Association, 2020)
      VRChat is one of social virtual reality platforms and getting popular. Pseudo physical contacts are used for communication in VRChat. We performed a questionnaire survey for VRChat users (N=341) in Japan to take statistics ...
    • AR Avatar Separated from Lecturer for Individual Communication in One-to-many Communication 

      Kitagishi, Yuki; Tanaka, Yuki; Yonezawa, Tomoko (The Eurographics Association, 2020)
      In this paper, we propose an augmented reality agent separated from the lecturer as his/her avatar to promote individual communication between the lecturer and the audience in parallel with one-to-many communication such ...
    • Empathy with Human's and Robot's Embarrassments in Virtual Environments 

      Sugiura, Maruta; Higashihata, Kento; Sato, Atsushi; Itakura, Shoji; Kitazaki, Michiteru (The Eurographics Association, 2020)
      We feel embarrassed not only when we are embarrassed but also when we are watching others embarrassed. Humans show empathy for pain not only human others but also robots. However, it has not been investigated whether humans ...
    • Spatialized AR Polyrhythmic Metronome Using Bose Frames Eyewear 

      Pinkl, James; Cohen, Michael (The Eurographics Association, 2020)
      Polyrhythms, combinations of contrasting but mathematically related rhythms, are challenging to play, even for skilled musicians. This project entails the development of an augmented reality metronome application with an ...
    • An Automated Virtual Receptionist for Recognizing Visitors and Assuring Mask Wearing 

      Zehtabian, Sharare; Khodadadeh, Siavash; Kim, Kangsoo; Bruder, Gerd; Welch, Greg; Bölöni, Ladislau; Turgut, Damla (The Eurographics Association, 2020)
      Intelligent virtual agents have many societal uses, specifically in situations in which the presence of real humans would be prohibitive. In particular, virtual receptionists can perform a variety of tasks associated with ...
    • Tactile Telepresence for Isolated Patients 

      Mostofa, Nafisa; Avendano, Indira; McMahan, Ryan P.; Welch, Gregory F. (The Eurographics Association, 2020)
      For isolated patients, for example COVID-19 patients in an intensive care unit, conventional televideo tools can provide a degree of visual telepresence, but at best approximate a ''through a window'' metaphor-visitors ...
    • Partial Finger Involvement Reflects into Grasping Tasks Performance and Accuracy
