Algorithmic Person Shape

3d algorithim for shsp of a person
  [vote for,

Take the swirly map of a person at (link) and wrap it into 3d. Use this 3d algorithim to represent a perfect person-shape, and then model movement around this.

       You're inventing vector graphics?

       The swirly person shape in 2d from the first link doesn't seem to have much to do with a person - it's mostly a series of exponential spirals (do I mean that? Something Fibonacciish) arranged so that a few of their curves match a few of the curves on the face.   

       I'm pretty sure I could do better.

       The concept of using equations to model complex curved surfaces is [Marked-For-Deletion] widely known to exist.

       isn't this just "biometrics 101: face shape" ?
