Types of Realisms when Perceiving a Non-Real Character
The non-real character is any human creation that artificially imitates another hu-man being. Despite whether it is
in artificial environment, such as simulation, animation or it is a real robot, user needs to have a sense of realism while
interacting. This article defines types of non-real characters and types of realisms, that can be divided into behavioral,
appearance, physical, social and emotional. More-over, the uncanny valley effect is described, that is the phenomena
interrupting the realism perception. It is important for non-real character developers to properly identify the type of their
creation, what types of realism has the most impact and what tools can be used to increase the reality impression by the user.
