Faking iContact

The latest rage in augmented reality: Fake eye contact is on the way. Or, as Apple is calling it, “FaceTime Attention Correction.” It digitally fixes the position of your pupils, so it looks like you’re gazing straight at the person you’re talking to.

It aims to fix a FaceTime oddity: Looking at the person’s face on your screen—not in the camera—leads to a weird sense that you’re looking off to the side.
 
But not everyone is down with this “digital fakery.”

What’s next … FaceTime Fake Paying Attention, for wandering minds as well as eyes?
