The Technology Research news published a short article about the generation of semanticons.
“Staring at a screenful of identical icons is not the most efficient way to find the file you are looking for.
Researchers from Northwestern University are looking to remedy the problem with a system that automatically generates semanticons — image-based file icons that are easier to find and remember than ordinary icons.
(…)
Users recognized semanticons an average of 1.96 seconds faster than ordinary icons and performed a memory game more than 20 percent faster using semanticons than ordinary icons, according to studies by the researchers.”
