....but I'd love to see it do an isolated hyperloop!

Thanks to psi for this, I couldn't not put it up in the mooves section

eat me, drink me, press me

Well it's a start and a good one at that. A 3rd dimension'd be usefull for when things get a bit more complicated or even a seperate front view. Well done! smile

Nice! Could do with perhaps having the hands colour coded as well and move a bit smoother... but nice!

no idea where it comes from or who made it. I just saw the link from the Bristol Fire thread and put it into here.

Psi might know who it is that made it? smile

Ah, yes, i randomly found this yesterday - it's [Old link] Homepage wink I really liked it, even though there arn't really very many moves available - nevertheless very usefull for beginners weavesmiley



Only on monday or so garthy and i were talking about coding up a poi simulator. Not just for displaying moves in 2D/3D (although that would already be sweet), but maybe even to be able to create new moves by actually simulating the poi in a physical model - although the latter is asking for a lot of work, so it's no more than a dream at the moment !! but it would be like the numerous juggling programs into which you can type any siteswap pattern juggle and it'll juggle it for you (even if the move is actually practically impossible to do)

Always wanted to make a similar thing meself. Maybe i'll have a crack at it.



That's a really good start. I was getting completely bogged down with the physics of it all but it's not that tricky really.



What I'd really like is a physical model made in director. I had a meeting with a 3d web developer i know and he reckons he can do it. Thing is he's a flakey hippy, and a genius. But he hasn't lifted a finger in almost a year ubblol



Thing with this page is that i think it's all animated. What you need is to program little functions in actionscript for separate patterns. Trickier, but not nearly as much as programing the physics in director confused



If poiple really want a little flash engine to animate poi patterns then i'm be up for the challenge. My thinking and understanding is a whole lot clearer these days and i reckon i could produce the goods wink

Hmm, i've got a working rigid body dynamics engine i coded a while ago for something totally unrelated to this, but i reckon one could adapt it to simulate poi (or staff) - bendy socks could easily be modelled by non-penetrable beads connected by harmonic springs. That could even simulate hyperloops ... ubblove

But i agree, the first step would be some easy way to encode poi patterns and a program to display them....

Will have a think ..

sooo nice this is..: o) thanx for the feedback guys... I have posted this into the videos section some time ago also..: o)

I WAS thinking of making a simulator but I havent really found or been able to think up anything similar to the system that jugglers have... What Im thinking of now would be to make transitions between tricks so you could click up the order of tricks youd like the Dude to spin and hed spin them along with transitions but Im still lacking some flash experience + my flash mx which is circulating somewhere around my town.. : o/ Nevermind!! Be sure to post any ideas youd like me to add and Ill see what I can do...

BTW.. Id like to see it make an isolated hyperloop too..; o))

Smile.. It confuses people..:)

Could you make it 3D so the viewer could rotate around it to get a really good view of the moves. Then you could teach poi to idiots!

Oh wait, someone already did...
