Interactive 3D/2D animation

New steps towards digital interactivity or better yet, the interaction with the virtual.
The technology tends to move toward the elimination of devices suitable to interact with the hardware devices that control.
An example of a virtual interactivity we can testing in the video of this post, dedicated to "Live2D."

Live2D, developed by Cybernoids, is the world's first drawing technology to enable 3D rendering of 2D images. This technology supports a variety of portable consoles and smartphones, and Live2D is already being utilized for 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.

Currently, Live2D is used mainly for dialog-type games with limited movement. But 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.
