Little is known about how external computer-generated images are treated by the sensorimotor system of the user – are they fully integrated into the external environmental cues, or largely ignored by low-level perceptual and motor processes? We examined this question using augmented reality to overlay semi-transparent holographic cubes atop real-world cubes using a head-mounted display which should induce the size-weight illusion. Please find our results here.
It´s all Open Access: If you have access to a HoloLens and want to try yourself, the code can be found here https://github.com/athierfelder/size-weight-illusion
