Abstract: Presence measurements are traditionally using a variety of subjective and objective measures. However, constraints often result in subjective measurements using questionnaires as a key method of data collection. In this paper we present a study of 44 participants of an augmented reality game known as TimeWarp which used both subjective and objective behavioural measures where both video recordings and self- reports about feelings of presence were compared. Our findings indicate that pointing behaviour and verbal responses to virtual content within an augmented reality scene are correlated negatively to sense of presence. As a result the paper indicates that there are behavioural measures that correlate and can predict subjective feelings of presence in the augmented reality game.
