Body size and shape seem to have been sexually selected in a variety of species, including humans, but little is known about what attractive bodies signal about underlying genotypic or phenotypic quality. A widely used indicator of phenotypic quality in evolutionary analyses is degree of symmetry (i.e., fluctuating asymmetry, FA) because it is a marker of(More)
3D conceptual design is a creative process. While the designers are in the inspirational mode, they want to quickly express the design ideas in 3D and visualize it in real time without obstacle. In an exploration of a new, natural and more user friendly interface to assist rapid 3D conceptual generation and visualization, a prototype system of hand gesture(More)
There is accumulating evidence of condition-dependent mate choice in many species, that is, individual preferences varying in strength according to the condition of the chooser. In humans, for example, people with more attractive faces/bodies, and who are higher in sociosexuality, exhibit stronger preferences for attractive traits in opposite-sex(More)
Virtual human crowd models have been used in the simulation of building and urban evacuation, but have not yet applied to underground coal mine operations and escape situations with emphasis on smoke, fires and physiological behaviors. We explore this through a real-time simulation model, MIMOSA (Mine Interior Model Of Smoke and Action), which integrates an(More)
Although there has been much previous research on which bodily features are most important in gait analysis, the questions of which features should be extracted from gait, and why these features in particular should be extracted, have not been convincingly answered. The primary goal of the study reported here was to take an analytical approach to answering(More)
An efficient framework were proposed for identifying individuals from gait via feature-based method based on 3D motion capture data. Three different extraction methods were applied to achieve gait signatures. The average identification rate was over 93% with best result close to 100% in a 35 subject database. In additional, gait attractiveness was analyzed(More)
Ancestrally, relatively attractive individuals and relatively formidable males may have had reduced incentives to be egalitarian (i.e., to act in accordance with norms promoting social equality). If selection calibrated one's egalitarianism to one's attractiveness/formidability, then such people may exhibit reduced egalitarianism ("observed egalitarianism")(More)
Wind turbine blades are the key parts of wind turbine. The large-scale wind turbine blade contour design and the choice of wing section both affect the wind turbine performance and the energy efficiency. The current research based on reverse engineering CAD technique to redesign the large-scale wind turbine blade, has incorporated the measurement of a large(More)
