When new user interfaces or information visualization schemes are developed for complex information processing systems, it is not readily clear how much they do, in fact, support and improve users' understanding and use of such systems. Is a new interface better than an older one? In what respect, and in which situations? To provide answers to such questions, user testing schemes are employed. This chapter reports on a range of risks pertaining to the design and implementation of user interfaces in general, and to newly emerging interfaces (3-dimensionally, immersive, mobile) in particular.

Acknowledgements: The discussion on user interfaces in this chapter is the result of nearly twodecades of work on novel user interfaces related in particular to Augmented Reality. Many peoplehave participated in the work and have influenced the authors in many ways. The authors (partic-ularly the first author) would like to thank the many current and past members of the FachgebietAugmented Reality (FAR), as well as the labs at the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics(IGD) and the European Computer-industry Research Centre (ECRC) prior to FAR for sharing andjointly developing many of the ideas. The authors are grateful to many collaborators across a largenumber of publicly or privately funded research projects, such as TUMMIC, Presenccia, KAUST,Crumbs, FORLOG, Speedup, IGSSE, Trackframe, the Chair for Computer-Aided Medical Proce-dures (CAMP) and the Chair for Applied Software Engineering.
