I would dig through the literature for virtual reality going back into the early 90s.

Help determine minimum viewing distance to small LCD display

Hi I have a user using a small 10.4" LCD display with a resolution of 1024x768 and has an aspect ratio of 16x10. Could you please help me find out what the minimum viewing distance (distance between the center of the screen and user's eye) is and what additional factors may be involved (like screen brightness, contrast, etc.) and how these factor into the equation.  Thanks a lot for your help!

Re: [IxDA] View larger images on web site - which is better: Link to gallery files or lightbox?

I hope I understood your question: you're looking for an apparent way for users to understand that a larger version of an image is available?

I think that most people are familiar with the "expand" functions on video sites - especially youtube and hulu.

There's usually a small symbol at the bottom right that looks like a box, and there are arrows pointing out diagonally from each corner, or a "broken" frame that accent only the corners of the small box.

Re: [IxDA] View larger images on web site - which is better: Link to gallery files or lightbox?

mydrive.ch opens a lightbox on LMB click, but still the image is linked directly such that the raw file can be opened in a new tab with MMB.

Re: [IxDA] where to use eye tracking?

Eye Tracking is generally used in conjunction with other methods except think aloud to understand the visual processing behavior over a stimulus(image, advertisement, website, software etc.). Thorough observation there is a likelihood that you can bias the results the same goes with interviews and other methods of self reports. But, with eye tracking you get actual results of the viusal processing behavior of participants which can help in triangulating results as well as supporting the results from other methods using gaze plots or heat maps.

where to use eye tracking?

Hi all,

Recently I got chance to try out eye tracking setup for one project. But I'm little confused about what phase is appropriate for using eye tracking. I mean for performance test, we can take tasks and test with users and get observations, for affordance test, I don’t think there is any need of eye tracking setup (as it can be executed by asking questions). So according to my understanding, eye tracking is purely for re-design so is this understanding correct?

Thanks, Kishor Sonawane
