L16 (March 24): Human motor performance on basic input tasks

We will dive deep into low level aspects of human neuromotor system.  From there, we will discover Fitts’ law, which will give us the superpower to make quantitative predictions about how much time people would need to perform basic tasks with different interface designs.  Along the way, we will empirically (and then analytically) answer one of the most important questions of our times: Which is better — Mac or PC?

Optional readings:

Important: bring a laptop to this class! (something with a mouse, a trackpad or a joystick — touch screen won’t do)
