Analysis of Eye Hand Interaction in Drawing Figure and Letter
We investigated the eye hand interaction by focusing on the position of fixation, in order to clarify the role of eye in drawing. In the experiment, participants were asked to draw the simple circle and popular Chinese letters under the three different conditions; drawing by using the pen which is out of ink, tracing and drawing. The result showed that three modes of eye-hand behaviour were observed. We suggested that these three modes should be considered to develop the training device to realize more effective handwrite-training.
