3D Human Factors & the User Experience

Researching, analyzing, defining, developing and deploying a successful S3D experience hinges on the ability to provide a compelling user experience that consumers will thoroughly enjoy.

There are many variables in 3D - types of display, lighting, age, unknown aspects around the human factors issues and user experience. At 3D@Home we are at the forefront of testing each variable to determine the ideal technical requirements, environment and settings for 3D.

We will be providing critical and interesting research results, links and information via this web presence. We believe the subject is important and deserves a great deal of attention.

In an effort to kick start these activities. I3DS & 3D@Home sponsored a series of mini-symposia on the subject of 3D and human factors. Experts from around the world come together to discover and discuss the 3D experience. You may not have been able to join us in person, but the following links provide much of the information that was shared.
