Abstract

Previously, our lab found that size and distance perception in virtual reality (VR) is determined primarily by the familiar size of objects under monocular and binocular viewing conditions (Rzepka, V-VSS 2021). Here we examined: 1) whether the familiar size effect generalizes to diverse objects; and 2) whether binocular viewing has more influence when using a state-of-the-art VR headset (Varjo XR1).
