A system has been developed for the actuation of a body. A touch-screen interface to a multiple muscle stimulator allows the body's movements to be programmed by touching the muscle-sites on the computer model.
A sequence of motions can be replayed continuously with a loop function. As well as choreography by screen-touching, it is possible to paste sequences together from a library of gesture icons. The 'improvise' function allows random motions to be superimposed.
The system allows simulation of the programmed movement for analysis and evaluation before transmission to actuate the body. At a lower simulation level it is a body-prompting system; at a higher simulation level it becomes a body-actuation system. -> http://www.stelarc.va.com.au/
