Although the processing speed of the computers has been drastically increasing year by year, users still have to wait for computers to complete tasks or respond. To cope with this, several studies have proposed presenting certain visual information to users to change their perception of time passing as shorter. In this study, we focused on a throbber as such visual information, which is animated graphical control element used to show that a computer program is performing an action in the background, and investigated the relationship between the components of throbbers (e.g., presenting durations, rotation velocities and its external diameters) and the users’ perceptions of waiting time. As a result, we could confirm that the participants felt that stimuli with slower rotation velocity and with larger external diameter had a shorter duration in case that presenting duration was 5 second.
