Japanese software technology turns 2D drawing into interactive 3D content for use with touchscreen devices - via DigInfo (video embedded below):
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.
“In 3D, the unique attractions of 2D art like Osamu Tezuka’s can’t be rendered properly. But with Live2D, we’ve worked to enable smooth 3D motion using entirely the original 2D drawings. So, this system makes the graphics appear exactly as the creator intended.”
“When the face turns sideways, you can show perfectly how the eyelashes and eyes move. You can also use the tools to work more easily and efficiently. This can be done in all kinds of ways, with all kinds of emphasis, depending on what the creator wants to do. This technology is an extension of drawing, so it works best if the creator has a good artistic sense.”

2012 Holi Festival of Colors at Spanish Fork, Utah.
Yeah, I did notice the absence of PoC. Still, this is an awesome idea. It would be super fun while on LSD.
It’s a holy festival dude. Not for drugs, not for people who aint Hindu.
And this is why we can’t have nice things. Because of entitled brats who think it’s all theirs, all the time, just for the having, in any way they like.
It particularly hurts in the case of Holi, which is a festival I would LIKE to share with others; but when so many of them think “share” means “grab and mangle”, it’s just not possible.
It’s like if I bake a cake, and there’s no fun in eating cake alone, and I want to share it with some friends, and some stranger waltzes in, goes OH HEY CAKE THAT WOULD BE AWESOME WITH LSD, smooshes their fist into it, grabs a handful while reducing the rest to a mess, and smears it all over their face, and goes “Well you were going to share, right?”
It just gets to the point where it’s less painful not to have cake.
