|On each joint will be an electronic position sensor that will read out the exact position of the joints.|
The Modeler will rest on an adjustable cradle, where the viewing angle can be changed via a rotating "camera". An alternative to this is to have a fixed camera angle, but a rotating support instead.
|An internal processor will read the locations of each sensor and display the position of the joints on an electronic "canvas".|
|Paper can then be placed above the canvas and the bright display will still be visible through the paper.|
|It is now a game of "connect the dots". The artist will now have a visual guide of where each joints are.|
I am targetting The Modeler as a drawing aid for kids, or anyone who wants to learn how to draw the human figure. It is, however, not a substitute for real life humans. Studying human posture is the best way to draw figures.
I am still in the research stage for this project, so I would gladly welcome any comments from already talented artists who would like to share their thoughts.
