How the "long" rotation data is generated

Video B1

Data format description

Every "datafieldlong" and "datafieldlongfinal" data point in the raw data consists of two integers separated by a colon, like so:


Here, the first value represents the position of the eyes, from 1 to 200. And the second integer represents the time in milliseconds since the last movement of the dial, or since the moment the page was first shown:

dial_position : interval

Each data of these sets is itself separated by a comma, so after some dial rotation you end up with the following type of data in "datafieldlong" and "datafieldlongfinal":

121:288,122:100,122:15,123:17,124:28,124:206,125:99,125:28,126:50,126:601, ...

I therefor also parsed the data to obtain the following two files:

Here, the "datafieldlong" and "datafieldlongfinal" final data has been parsed for you. To be specific:

In other words, in these files the rotation points are represented by:

face_position : time_since_start
