Jari Takatalo, Jukka Häkkinen, Jyrki Kaistinen, Göte Nyman
2007 Image Quality and System Performance IV  
In trying to understand user experience in interactive technologies such as computer games and virtual environments, reliable and valid concepts are needed for measuring relevant user reactions and experiences  ...  The 15 measurement scales extracted from these models are applied to digital gaming with a head-mounted display and a table-top display.  ...  High level of attention and arousal were also characteristics to the 1 st person driving game NFS (Fig. 2. ).  ...

A Framework for the Creating, Expressing and Sharing of User's Emotion

Kyoung Shin Park, Yongjoo Cho, Dong Keun Kim
2014 International Journal of Multimedia and Ubiquitous Engineering  
It dynamically alters userspecified images or models to express user emotions. It also enables users to share their emotion with others using customized emotion expressions applied in the content.  ...  This framework allows a designer to create the emotion content that interprets a user's emotional state and adapts its visual and aural characteristics based on user-specified emotion rules.  ...  This model targets nine regions of emotion: Pleasure, Arousal-Pleasure, Excitement, Arousal, Distress Misery, Depression, Sleepiness, and Contentment [10] Emotion Recognition In previous affective computing  ...

The psychology of the 3D experience

Sophie H. Janicke, Andrew Ellis, Andrew J. Woods, Nicolas S. Holliman, Gregg E. Favalora
2013 Stereoscopic Displays and Applications XXIV  
The enhanced enjoyment of the sports content was shown to be the result of heightened emotional arousal and attention in the 3D condition.  ...  In our final study, we found 3D technology significantly enhanced enjoyment of two video games from different genres. The added enjoyment was found to be the result of an increased sense of presence.  ...  As was expected from the added realism of a stereoscopic gaming environment, users reported a greater sense of physiological arousal in the 3D condition compared to the 2D condition ( Figure 8 ).  ...
