A still image from the animation framework showing the ‘bare bones’ of the character rigging used to animate the action of movement in areas such as arms, legs and walking so our characters could go about their smarter working day. The rigging is comprised of different coloured sticks connected by dots that represent limbs and joints the limbs and joints of three humanoid shapes, two sitting and one standing. The sticks and dots can be manipulated to portray movement when illustrative graphics are overlaid
