Comparative analysis of selected human-computer interfaces


Abstract

This article deals with the comparison of two technologies for manipulating 3D objects in terms of ease of use, ergonomics and intuitiveness. The comparison was based on the results obtained from the outcome of test tasks and questionnaires performed on the group of 15 people. Detailed research and test scenarios and additional questionnaires have been made. Each of the respondents had the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the device by performing three tests in two test scenarios (one per device).
