    Abstract

    This paper presents a novel research tool to analyze the semantics of three-dimensional forms. We developed an online game that uses crowdsourcing techniques to gather data about the perceptions of form from different people all over the world. The aspired result of the tool is a collection of statistical data about the semantics of form. The data could be used by designers to better understand and control the connotative meanings embedded in the shape of their designs.
