RakugakiAR is an app designed to make something we've all imagined come true: "What if my drawings came to life...?" Just doodle in a notebook, on a whiteboard, or any other surface. As the app scans your doodle, it will come to life and start walking through the virtual space. You can feed them, poke them, or even tease them a little. Whatever developed a proprietary engine called "HoneBorn," which allows the user to add life-like motion to the doodle by recognizing the head, body, arms, and legs from the scanned doodle and automatically assign bones and joints. This creates a believable experience that lets a child feel as if the doodle is alive by making it sync and interact through the smartphone.
