However, one of the central truths of HCI is that even the most careful and well-informed designs can still go wrong in any number of ways. Thus, evaluation of user experience becomes critical. In this chapter, we discuss some of the evaluation methods that can be used for 3D UIs, metrics that help to describe the 3D user experience, distinctive characteristics of 3D UI evaluation, and guidelines for choosing 3D UI evaluation methods. Evaluation should be performed not only when a design is complete, but also throughout the design process.
For many years, the fields of 3D UIs, VR, and AR were so novel and the possibilities ...
