    The ubiquitous and pervasive use of lighting effects embedded into peripheral hardware has gained popularity through it’s use in Triple-A video game titles such as Call of Duty and the availability of software development kits (SDK) from leading manufacturers. A preliminary NASA TLX experiment was performed to examine the effect that notifications displayed on a peripheral device has, in comparison to traditional dialog notifications. This research will prove useful to create notification design guidance for these devices.
