elementary Labs: it's where we test crazy ideas and random research. Today, we're happy to announce a brand new experiment!
For our second experiment, we show the user two random wallpapers and have them identify and click on the one they like better. The wallpapers are randomly pulled from our large selection of potential wallpapers. The pairings themselves are random as well. The user is encouraged to repeat the test multiple times to compare many wallpapers. After thousands of user-submitted tests, we will use the results to rank the wallpapers as an aid in choosing the best ones for our next release.
It's really simple to do; just click on the screenshot you like better! You can even use your keyboard's arrow keys if you're lazy (or "efficient"). Just click the button below to hop over there and give it a try.
You may become addicted. Seriously, you can tell yourself you will only do one or two, but you just... won't... want... to... stop. It's okay, the longer you sit there tapping away, the more say you have in the ranking of the wallpapers! What are you waiting for? Hit that pretty button and give it a shot. Humanity will see you again in a few days. We promise.
