Back in May 2007, Project White Glove Tracking was launched. It asked the general public to help isolate and track Michael Jacksons white glove in 10,060 frames of his performance of Billy Jean. It only took 72 hours to complete the global task.
The movie above is just one way the data was used (and my favorite by far). Take a look at the other movies created using different implementations of the data including this one…the white glove slinky.
