What is this? is it just an academic/intellectual exercise in how the body can be defined in OOP?

I added a file with an example using (index.php)
Furthermore, the result of his actions is available on screenshot

I didn't understand it at first sight. I think it's worthy to take a deep look into it, especially if one doesn't really understand the pattern, wich is my case :-).

By the way, excuse my English grammar.

Rotate head 1? is that one 360 rotation? that does not make sense..rotate X degrees maybe.

Smell volume? smell can be measured in volume?.

Emit light? that is just...well...unnatural...("emit" smell, however might make more sense ;-)

But even then...I still do not get the point of this... Is it to control a robot? (there are far better languages to do that). is it to keep track of a character's movements in a game?

What is a practical application of this?

Is it necessary to have each class has a practical use? "Digital Human" was created as a set of components that can be freely modified and extended (including the naming of the environment, body and reflexes of the body).

I personally see it as a base for further development of the program. For example, currently working on a module entitled "Recognize shapes from image"

Ultimately, the project can become a tool for research and development to better understand and simulate activity of the human body.

If anyone is looking for a ready solution be rapidly implemented method for copy-paste - is this project for this purpose are not suitable

no it is not necessary to have a practical purpose. That was my original question. You state "ultimately..a tool for research and development to better understand and simulate activity of the human body"

Fine..that is the purpose...

I think it is interesting that one could define the body in such a way.

I would suggest that you separate areas of interaction:
for example, movement (each part has ranges of motion), spatial (current position in relation to other parts i.e. a finger could be next to the nose or next to the hip), transport( a finger moves in space if it's parent arm moves) sensing (how it is affected by the properties of other objects depending on proximity i.e. how close the finger is to a hot stove determines if it is hot or burning), physics (the effect of weight, motion, inertia), Then you can get to more sophisticated things like emotions)

thank you, best of luck.

A comment: this is not important, but i seems to me that building a human prototype to build a "sensing objects" application is like building a house so you can make a door knob. Just a comment..
