Fits Like a Glove: Rapid and Reliable Hand Shape Personalization

David Joseph Tan, Thomas Cashman, Jonathan Taylor, Andrew Fitzgibbon, Daniel Tarlow, Sameh Khamis, Shahram Izadi, Jamie Shotton
2016 2016 IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR)  
We present a fast, practical method for personalizing a hand shape basis to an individual user's detailed hand shape using only a small set of depth images.  ...  Experimental results quantitatively demonstrate for the first time that detailed personalized models improve the accuracy of hand tracking and achieve competitive results in both tracking and model registration  ...  The template is the wrong shape for the female subject, too small for the male and wildly too large for the two children. After personalization, each model fits each user 'like a glove'.  ...
