In this study, we investigate potential relationships between avatar appearance and viewpoint within the context of low-cost motion tracking using Body and Mirror factors. Six experimental conditions were developed that combined Body and Mirror factors. In this between-groups design, participants were able to control their self-avatar by using HTC Vive controllers and trackers. Our results suggest a relationship between perceived similarity with the selfavatar and looking at the self-avatar.
