Exploring the Interaction Between Visual Flux and Users on Mobile Devices
This research introduces the concept of visual flux to depict the process of the physical interaction between users and mobile devices in the scenario of controlled visual stimulation over various screen dimensions. Position sensors of mobile devices and motion sensors are applied in this research to incorporate the effects of corresponding distance and orientation between devices and users. A reconstruction system is established to provide a pragmatic approach to the process of user activities. The experimental results indicate that the participant performance under the condition of the same number and even size of stimulation decreases with increasing device dimensions, and the correlation between the angle of view and participant performance is revealed. Future research based on this concept could be conducted to extend the screen dimensions and thereby discover the entire spectrum of the informative glasses.
