Interactive Simulation Control

This simple demo shows a stylized arm composed of two rigid bodies connected by a revolute joint, and activated by a muscle-activated FEM. Muscle activation within the FEM is achieved by embedding a set of point-to-point actuators within the model itself, which connect FEM nodes and/or embedded marker points. A global activation level excites contractile forces on these actuators, which in turn causes the muscle to contract.
