Abstract

With this paper we document an experiment that is defined to test to what extent stereoscopic depth may control a user’s gaze pattern while performing a search task. The experiment consisted in displaying a search engine result page created in a 2D and 3D side by side format, and a questionnaire that gathers information about participants’ opinion towards a stereoscopic 3D experience. While this experiment is a first pilot and more research is needed, it is indicative of user behavior. In this paper we describe preparations for the study, hardware and software tools used to carry out the experiment, and results analysis.
