PDF: Avatar anthropomorphism and acrophobia

Abstract

In this paper, we investigate the impact of avatar anthropomorphism on the fear of heights, when using full body avatar embodiment under an immersive virtual reality (VR) setting. Clear differences could be found in perceived anthropomorphism, but preliminary results do not show differences in stress level between Human and Non-Human avatars, although a high level of perceived secureness was reported with Non-Human avatars.
