In the last years stereoscopic 3D has seen a drastic increase in popularity especially in terms of consumer-ready hardware and software. While the technology for input (smart-phone, Kinect, etc.) as well as output (passive/active stereoscopic and auto-stereoscopic displays etc.) is market ready, only few solutions for natural interaction with such devices exist. In this paper we propose an approach for mobile and gestural interaction with stereoscopic 3D content. We evaluate our technique in a 3D docking task on a large 3D display. In an experiment the interaction technique was evaluated for monoscopic and stereoscopic displayed data. Our results show that the translation and rotation precision benefits from the usage of stereoscopic 3D. Especially for tasks that require simultaneous rotation on all three axes stereoscopic displays outperform monoscopic 3D drastically.
