Idle hands are the devil's playthings.

-- Benjamin Franklin

We hereby provide BusyHands, a large open dataset of pixel-level annotated images of hands performing 13 different tool-based assembly tasks, from both real-world captures and virtual-world renderings. 

A total of 7906 samples are included in our first-in-kind dataset, with both RGB and depth images as obtained from a Kinect V2 camera and Blender.

Synthetic annotated data
