The effect of three viewing conditions -- direct, 2D television, and 3D television -- upon performance of a simple remote handling task was investigated. Fifteen subjects used a CRL Model 8 master-slave manipulator to perform a shortened and revised version of the Placing Subtest of the Minnesota Rate of Manipulation Test. All subjects performed the task under each of the viewing conditions employed. Results of this study indicated that: (1) subject performance under the direct viewing condition was significantly faster than that obtained under either of the video conditions, and (2) no significant differences were noted between the two video conditions even though performance times under the 2D condition were initially longer than those obtained under the 3D condition.
