Abstract

This study aimed to propose a display that incorporates the Fraser-Wilcox illusion with a higher attention effect. Fraser-Wilcox illusion is a type of visual illusion in which a part of a still image appears to be moving. We compared the attention effects of shapes that induce the Fraser-Wilcox illusion and those that do not. As an evaluation method of attention recall effect, the visual discrimination task, which was an experimental technique to measure the characteristics of visual attention, was used. The correlation between the strength of visual illusion and the target reaction time was examined. As a result, a strong negative correlation was observed. The larger the strength of visual illusion, the faster the detection of the target. These results suggest that the Fraser-Wilcox illusion has an alerting effect on visual illusion.
