White Glove Tracking

July 4th, 2007

Two months ago the White Glove Tracking project was launched. Users were asked to locate Michael Jacksons white glove in a ‘Billy Jean’ live performance video, by drawing a yellow rectangle over it. After 72 hours the job was done, all 10,060 frames were analyzed. Now, they released all the data, the coordinates of the rectangles, and video material for you to use and mash-up. There are already some samples in the gallery, one uses the height of the glove to adjust the speed, an other one always displays the glove centered and at the same size.
This project is related to the Eyebeam Research Lab and the Graffiti Research Lab.
