Recent developments in the area of interactive entertainment have suggested to combine stereoscopic visualization with multi-touch displays, which has the potential to open up new vistas for natural interaction with interactive three-dimensional applications. However, the question arises how user interfaces for such setups should be designed in order to provide an effective user experience. In this paper we introduce 3D GUI widgets for interaction with stereoscopic touch displays. We have designed the widgets according to skeuomorph features and affordances. We evaluated the developed widgets in the scope of an example application in order to analyze the usability of and user behavior with this 3D user interface. The results reveal differences in user behavior with and without stereoscopic display during touch interaction, and show that the developed 3D GUI widgets can be used effectively in different applications.
