Thank god! I was wondering where that glove was.

I think it's fine to see where the glove is. Just for the love of all that is Holy please don't update me on where it's been.

If this devolves into a game of hide the glove, count me in.

I started using orange flavored scope for gargling and rinsing. It's really a nice flavor, and I've consequently started rinsing three times a day

Stynxno: "are we updating every thread now?"

Good idea.
Update: Still dead.

I think we should be made to track the glove... but not, you know, over and over.

Can someone explain to me, briefly, what the point of this project is?

Did you mean to say smëll the glove, Alvy? Or for that matter, how about just the finger?

EB: It's kind of a random, geeky, funny thing to do I suppose. As designbot said in the original thread, this could be done easily with AE, but doing it in a distributed way seems pretty neat to me. If you're looking for a real practical use for the data, er... I guess you're SOL.

gwint, thanks for pointing this out. I didn't see the original FPP.

Oh, I see it's funded by some technology/art orgs. See? It's art! Art, I tell you!

Uh, this must be a mistake, but it's damn funny. If you're into shit that drives you crazy.

update.metafilter.com?

I don't think that's a mistake, phaedon. I think they're adjusting the video speed based on the height of the glove.

What's wrong with being sexy?

I know exactly what I said, miss lynster. I was paraphrasing. Now, if you'd be so kind, please get Mr. Clinton's funky finger the hell away from me.

I just... I mean... I'm lost to the point of the original point. And even loster at this.

But taking miss lynnster's lead, let me just say...

How much more black can it be? None. None more black.

Or, for the glove, white.

I guess.

Bad day to quit Percocet.

The higher the glove is on the screen, the faster the song.

Yeah, and I didn't think the effect was very interesting. Did they do a version where the glove is always (almost) stationary at the center of the screen? That might be interesting.

As a matter of fact, they did.
