How to create a similar effect to this video?

Hi, I wonder how to create a similar effect to the one shown in this video.

It seems like it’s modifying vertices of the sphere mesh but I don’t understand how it can distort the sphere like the one in the video.

Is it possible to do a similar thing in OF?

Thanks in advance!

I don’t think the basis is a pure sphere but a revolved object. If you rotate a curve around an axis to create the geometry, it should be quite easy to reproducte this behaviour.
