For instance, prolonged viewing at a special location of a user interface, as indicated by certain patterns on a heat map, may imply that the user is cognitively absorbed by the content or that they are simply struggling to figure it out. Similarly, sweaty foreheads/hands may imply negative restlessness or positive excitement; individual and socio-cultural differences in facial expressions make interpreting electromyography data difficult; or a deviation of heart rate can also indicate emotional changes.

Although the situation significantly changed over the last years there is still little usability data available for the design of specific AR-based applications. Augmented Reality systems are creating a new kind user experience (UX), which is based on the integration of the real and virtual into the same interaction space. While the configurations based on head mounted displays (HMD) are integrating A. ): USAB 2008, LNCS 5298, pp. 31–42, 2008. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2008 32 C. D.
