In designing and evaluating human-robot interactions and interfaces, researchers often use a simulated robot due to the high cost of robots and time required to program them. However, it is important to consider how interaction with a simulated robot differs from a real robot; that is, do simulated robots provide authentic interaction? We contribute to a(More)
Players perceived enemies as weaker with x-ray than red flash, and even weaker with paper doll. Players found red flash and x-ray more realistic than paper doll. Players thought characters would notice injuries more with x-ray than paper doll, and least with red flash. Paper doll was not salient enough for some players, for such reasons as being too(More)
The issue of believability is core to android science, the challenge of creating a robot that can pass as a near human. While researchers are making great strides in improving the quality of androids and their likeness to people, it is simultaneously important to develop theoretical foundations behind believability, and experimental methods for exploring(More)
