TOKYO, Japan – Cybernoids has developed an advanced software, Live2D, capable of rendering 2D pictures into interactive 3D images, that are controllable by a touchscreen.
The most notable capability of the developed software is that it is able to render even unique attractions of 2D art, like Osamu Tezuka’s one, without losing the touch of the artist. The general idea behind the technology actually comes even further to offer an extension of the work of the artist in one more dimension.
Currently the technology is still limited to simple mowements of the rendered pictures, but from the developing company is aiming at the tools to evolve to a point where the motions of the characters can be rendered through 360 degrees.
The Life2D technology offers future implementation in mobile devices, like tablets and smartphones, the opportunity to turn into valuable assistants for rendering in 3D of images and even photos, created by artists.
