We present the first experiment analyzing the effectiveness of robot-generated mixed reality gestures using real robotic and mixed reality hardware. Our findings demonstrate how these gestures increase user effectiveness by decreasing user response time during visual search tasks, and show that robots can safely pair longer, more natural referring expressions with mixed reality gestures without worrying about cognitively overloading their interlocutors.
