Sonic-eye is a technology that helps blind people see using echolocation, the same way that bats are able to manoeuver in the dark at speeds of up to 30 mph. This After Effects animation illustrates the concept of the prototype.
The wing animation, bending the shape in 3D space, was achieved with FreeForm Pro, which lets you bend and deform a layer in 3D space. The same results can also be achieved with FreeForm, our standard 3D Mesh Warp plug-in. The animation technique was inspired by Dan Gies' character animation tutorial series. vimeo.com/29643579
