The Eyeballing Game

In an effort to lift your eyelids this Monday, I am directing your shortened attention span to the eyeballing game. Developed by a woodworker for his friends, the game consists of a series of tasks intended to determine how accurately you can eyeball things. It would be interesting to know how designers fared compared to non-designers, and how designers fared against each other: are graphic designers more precise than architects? Do fashion designers shame industrial designers? My average is 3.91… neither fantastic nor shabby. How’d you do?

    Very cool. 4.65 @ 137.73 seconds.

    I’m a designer and I scored a 4.41. Then again I haven’t had my coffee yet. I’ll give it another shot when I do.

    Designer. 5.00 in 99.7 seconds…that’s tough.

    3.67 I should have done better as I pride myself on this sort of thing. Graphic Design Student.

    i went from 7.9 or something going fast, to 3.87 at a medium pace. I thought being faster would have a positive effect on the score but apparently you can take an hour and it won’t matter.

    i guess its not enough data to read any tendency though ;)

    Designer / Artist. 3.58 I feel like I could beat that though. My scores generally improved as I went.

    Designer. 3.30 in 136.57. I’ve been drinking and it’s a little past midnight.

    2.79, industrial designer.
    pixels and mouser laser can’t follow our eyeball precision. I always bisected the angle at 0.7 precisely! Not accurate! This should be done on paper using a pencil only inside a classroom – that would be fun.

    Non-designer. Got a 6.17 in 101.63. Look like being a designer helps you?

    I always wondered if there was something like this online. I have too much fun eyeballing measurements then checking with a ruler to see how accurate I am. My best score is 3.34 at 181s and I’m a fashion designer.

    Non-designer but amateur woodworker. I scored 3.71 in 217.23.
