To create animation you need to move the objects between each frame of animation. You can 
use a timer and move the 3D objects by a small amount each time. Also, you can modify the 
objects in other ways, the next example scales the ball so that it looks squashed at the 
bottom of each bounce.

For interaction with the user, you can process keystrokes or clicks on buttons or other 
components.

One thing to notice is that you have to tell Java3D you are going to move something by 
setting a capability. Otherwise, you will not be able to move anything once it has been 
drawn.

 objTrans = new TransformGroup();
 objTrans.setCapability(TransformGroup.ALLOW_TRANSFORM_WRITE);

The following example combines these techniques. You start it by clicking on the button, 
then the ball bounces up and down, and you can press a or s to move the ball left or 
right.
