Last week we had the Acuity Christmas party and as usual we closed the office down for the day to immerse ourselves in a range of activities as a well-earned break from all our research into visual attention and decision making.
In my Eye-Tracking Preview of 2016 I suggested that virtual reality was going to be a major topic of discussion this year, and if the internet chatter around the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas was anything to go by, I wasn’t wrong.
