Abstract

Humans naturally use an impressive variety of ways to com-
municate. In this work, we investigate the possibilities of complementing these natural communication channels with articial ones. For this, augmented reality is used as a technique to add synthetic visual and auditory stimuli to people's perception. A system for the mutual display
of the gaze direction of two interactants is presented and its acceptance is shown through a study. Finally, future possibilities of promoting this novel concept of articial communication channels are explored
