What you are seeing here is the world's first drawing technology to enable 3D rendering of 2D images. Live2D, developed by Cybernoids, enables smooth 3D motion using 2D drawings. The technology is already being utilized for dialog-type games that take advantage of the unique characteristics of hand drawn artwork.
The Live2D creation tools are available in two versions, supporting content creation using either polygons or vectors. A 3D engine is used to power the polygon based version, so it can achieve fast, fluid motion even on mobile devices. Over the next year or two, Cybernoids aims for the tools to evolve to a point where the motions of the characters can be rendered through 360 degrees.
