Our group here in Colorado is working on designing a simple animator
that runs in Java. We're building it with the idea of showcasing the
chaotic shuffler. When the project's completed, anyone on the web will
be able to upload their own dances onto the animator, shuffle them,
and then save the newly shuffled dances. They'll also be able to call
my interpolator that fills in missing transitions in the dance. We're a
long way away from having something useable at this point, I just wanted
to call your attention to it for future reference. The first running
versions will probably be very limited: they won't handle multiple figures or
let you translate the figure through xyz space; they'll only let you manipulate
one figure's joint orientations. When the Java animator's up and running
you'll find a link to it from the page:

(no link exists at the moment!). Take care,
