The Effectiveness of 3D Displays on Sorting Behaviour in Post- Secondary Institutions Fu, Alice; Siu, Andy; Misra, Reshma


Visual processing has shown to improve greater conceptual understanding and how visual cues are situated spatially can also increase cognition processes (Gozli, Chasteen & Pratt, 2013). Another aspect of visual processing of a target is described by Bardy & Laurent (1991) as the time-to-contact parameter (Tc), which determines what information an individual can visually absorb. Spatial representation alongside the dilation rate of the target on the retina can help garner individuals’ attention before they dispose of their items through their respective bins (Gozli, Chasteen & Pratt, 2013; Bardy & Laurent, 1991). With the addition of 3D displays, it is possible to implement findings on visual acuity to improve sorting behaviours at UBC’s Stir It Up Café in the Buchanan A building.
