Abstract
This paper reports a human-factors evaluation of cursor-positioning devices for 3-dimensional (3-D) display workstations. Five input devices were compared in terms of cursor-positioning time and error with two 3-D display systems: a true 3-D stereoscopic display system and a conventional display system using linear perspective to convey depth information. For both 3-D display systems, the results indicated that vector-oriented input devices produced lower cursor-positioning errors and faster cursor-positioning time than either plane-oriented or free-space input devices. Several implementations of vector-oriented input devices are discussed.
