We introduce a study investigating the impact of high frame rate videos on viewer's eye blink frequency. A series of videos with varying combinations of motion complexities and frame rates were shown to participants, while their eye blinks were counted with J!NS MEME (smart eye wear). Lower frame rates and lower motion complexity caused higher blink frequencies, which are markers for stress and emotional arousal.
