Results from an experiment to move wet/dry objects with wrinkled/dry fingers
A data frame with 80 observations on the following 7 variables.
Participant ID (
Time to move objects (seconds)
Status of fingers (
Status of objects (
Wrinkled first? (
Dry first? (
Each of 20 participants were measured doing a "transfer task" several times under each of four conditions. The transfer task was to pick up an item with the right hand thumb and index finger, pass the item through a small hole and grab it with the left hand, and then put the item into a box that had a hole in the lid. Sometimes the participant's fingers were wrinkled; sometimes the items were sitting in water.
