Abstract:Technology has an ever-growing role in sports. To explore how technology can improve training practice, there is the need to explore the usefulness of real-time augmented visual information in guiding motor behavior. This paper will investigate if the affordance of catchability can be influenced by presenting volleyball players with a manipulated action boundary and will measure the impact on behavior (distance covered, response time) and performance (catch or not). An experiment is described where 26 participants were presented with a smaller- or larger-than real action boundary in an attempt to manipulate affordance before they were given the task to catch an incoming fly ball. No significant effect was found between the two manipulation groups on behavior or performance.
