Abstract

Smart devices have been gaining importance in our lives during the recent years, causing the human beings to spent increasingly more time on the electronic screen. Screens simultaneously act as an interface for both input and output. Therefore, the use of colors on screens have become an important topic. The experiment records the reaction time of each task after color adaptation. Color samples used in this study include the three primary colors and the three complex colors; the size of the stimulus shown in the experiments was a controlled factor, allowing participants to discriminate between each. Results of the experiments showed that the average reaction time after color adaptation is shorter than that of before color adaptation. The background color Blue showed the best performance each time. In other words, the human visual ability reaches a steady level after a very short time period. The results of this study can be applied on user interface design.
