Mixed Reality Devices and Financial Data

With the advent of mixed reality devices such as the MicrosoftHoloLens, developers have been faced with the challenge toutilize the third dimension in information visualization ef-fectively. Research on stereoscopic devices has shown thatthree-dimensional representation can improve accuracy in spe-cific tasks (e.g., network visualization). Yet, so far the fieldhas remained mute on the underlying mechanism. Our studysystematically investigates the differences in user perceptionbetween a regular monitor and a mixed reality device. In a real-life within-subject experiment in the field with twenty-eightinvestment bankers, we assessed subjective and objective taskperformance with two- and three-dimensional systems, respectively. We tested accuracy with regard to position, size, andcolor using single and combined tasks. Our results do not showa significant difference in accuracy between mixed-reality and standard 2D monitor visualizations.
