論文アブストラクト:People's ability to remember and recall spatial information can be harnessed to improve navigation and search performances in interactive systems. In this paper, we investigate how display size and input modality influence spatial memory, especially in relation to efficiency and user satisfaction. Based on an experiment with 28 participants, we analyze the effect of three input modalities (trackpad, direct touch, and gesture-based motion controller) and two display sizes (10.6" and 55") on people's ability to navigate to spatially spread items and recall their positions. Our findings show that the impact of input modality and display size on spatial memory is not straightforward, but characterized by trade-offs between spatial memory, efficiency, and user satisfaction.

日本語のまとめ:

使用するインターフェースの入出力手法による空間記憶能力への影響を調査した。結果、出力画面が大きい場合に限り、ジェスチャ入力やタッチ入力のような腕をよく動かす入力手法の方が空間記憶能力を向上させることが分かった。
