With the development of intelligent interfaces and emerging technologies children and adult users are provided with exciting interaction approaches in several applications. Holographic applications were until recently only available to few people, mostly experts and researchers. In this work, we are investigating the differences between children and adult users towards their interaction behavior in mixed reality, when they were asked to perform a task. Analysis of the results demonstrates that children can be more efficient during their interaction in these environments while adults are more confident and their experience and knowledge is an advantage in
achieving a task.


This work has been partly supported by the project that has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 739578 (RISE – Call: H2020-WIDESPREAD-01-2016-2017-TeamingPhase2) and the Government of the Republic of Cyprus through the Directorate General for European Programmes, Coordination and Development.
