Writing from sources

This was our first experiment.
It serves as a workbench to “fine tune” the Eye and Pen software. The experiment was realized by Denis Alamargot (2001).

The participants were asked:
– first to assemble a model of a turbine (a toy for children)
– and next, to write a guidlines for a novice user.

The production support (a (sheet of paper) shows pictures of the parts of the engine (and their names) and some intermediate stages of assembly.

Below you can see our first eyetracker (Eyeputer, fixed head monocular, modified to include a “bite bar”; sampling rate: 480 Hz) and an A4+ digitizer (34×34 cm).

The device looks a bit terrible, but the participant’s position was setup to be as comfortable as possible.
