KineMan is a cool little Chrome Experiment that is both educational and fun (assuming you’re the kind who can get a kick out of playing with skeletons). You can use sliders to control 1 degree of freedom motions, or you can drag across the canvas for 2DOF motion. It takes a few minutes to get into the interface, but once you’re engaged, you can get a bit lost contorting the little guy. Of course, this is definitely a must have app for anyone in the throws of learning skeletal anatomy.
