For a long time, i dreamt of creating virtual humans - specifically, a realtime, physical simulation of a human that could interact with its virtual environment.   In 1995-97, i tried to learn sufficient modeling, anatomy and physics for the task.  I gathered lots of notes, wrote some code and attended the virtual humans conference twice.  Eventually, i had to put it on the back burner.

I could describe in great detail why simulated humans haven't happened yet, but that would be too negative, so instead i'll just leave you with my notes, which for the most part haven't been updated since the late 90s.   They do still, however (unfortunately) probably cover the subject more exhaustively than anywhere else on the Web.
