Device and method for modifying rendering based on viewer focus area from eye tracking
Devices and methods for modifying content rendered on the display of a computing device as a function of eye focus area include receiving sensor data from one or more eye tracking sensors, determining an eye focus area on the display screen as a function of the sensor data, and adjusting one or more visual characteristics of the rendered content as a function of the eye focus area. Perceived quality of the rendered content may be improved by improving the visual characteristics of the content displayed within the eye focus area.
