Abstract
Touchscreen interfaces do more than allow users to execute speedy interactions. Three interfaces (touchscreen, mouse-drag, on-screen button) were used in the service of performing an object manipulation task. Results showed that planning time was shortest with touch screens, that touchscreens allowed high action knowledge users to perform the task more efficiently, and that only with touchscreens was the ability to rotate the object the same across all axes of rotation. The concept of closeness is introduced to explain the potential advantages of touchscreen interfaces.
