In this study a traditional colourpicker (the one in Microsoft Office) is compared with a new kind of colour picker, a prototype called "Kolorpicker". The fundamental difference between the two is that Microsoft presents colour in 2D, while Kolorpicker uses a 3D globe to show the world of colour. Both efficiency (search-time) and accuracy (ability to find a specific colour) is tested on mostly colour naive subjects. The results show that the 3D application gives better efficiency as well as accuracy. The main conclusion is that naive users of colour pickers would benefit if these where based on 3D.
