The sound of Cambridge

Safe and sound drive

Science and cereal packets

Where do our eyes glance when choosing drinks and food products? Have a go at wearing a pair of eye tracking glasses and make a selection of cereal packets, soft drinks and sweets, from a mock-up of a supermarket shelf. Researchers will track your eye movements during the choice process, record this and play it back to you. Where did you look? For how long? How is this related to the chosen product? Facilitated by Timothy Froggett, Lord Ashcroft International Business School, Anglia Ruskin University
