In this paper, we developed saccade-induced line displays including flashing period controllers. The displays speeded up the flashing period of one line using LED drivers and Arduino Uno equipped with AVR microcomputers. It was shown that saccades were easily induced when the observer alternately looks at the two fast flashing line displays apart. Also, we were able to find the optimum flashing period using a controller that can speed up the flashing period and change its speed. We found that the relationship between the viewing angle of the observer and the optimum flashing period is almost proportional.
