Abstract

Can we see the world through the eyes of somebody else? We present an early work to transfer eye gaze from one person to another. Imagine you can follow the eye gaze of an instructor while explaining a complex work step, or you can experience a painting like an expert would: Your gaze is directed to the important parts and follows the appropriate steps. In this work, we explore the possibility to transmit eye-gaze information in a subtle, unobtrusive fashion between two individuals. We present an early prototype consisting of an optical eye-tracker for the leader (person who shares the eye gaze) and two monochrome see-through displays for the follower (person who follows the eye gaze of the leader). We report the results of an initial user test and discuss future works.
