Interactive Sagittal Section 2.0 created by Daniel Currie Hall Use the controls below to set the position of the lips, tongue, velum, and vocal folds.

Except for lip rounding, secondary articulations are ignored in the transcription.

The application is built in openFrameworks with 3d models animated and rigged in Blender and exported to the FBX file format and loaded into openFrameworks using ofxFBX. The group of creatures follows simple flocking behaviour to simulate a herd, inspired by the Gallimimus herd in ‘Jurassic Park‘. The human head is animated programmatically by controlling the bones in theFBX model.
