Stereo vs. One-Eyed Cursors for 3D Pointing and Implications for Touch Interfaces Misc

Wolfgang Stuerzlinger, Robert J. Teather


We compare remote pointing and mouse pointing techniques using both a stereo- and mono-rendered cursor in a Fitts' law pointing experiment with varying target depths in a 3D scene. Results indicate that mouse-based techniques perform best and that the one-eyed cursor is beneficial only for some pointing techniques. We discuss the implications for 3D touch interfaces.
