Animeeple is a startup I did before joining Apple. At Animeeple we developed character animation tools for editing, layering, sequencing and retargeting of character animations (similar to non-linear video editors)
We also developed an online asset marketplace where users could share or sell characters or animations. This marketplace also integrated into our desktop animation tool so one could seamlessly incorporate stock content into their creations.
Using our technology we developed a mobile character posing application: Posey. It let the user create customized characters, pose them and put them into pictures.
We also used our technology in a rythm dancing game: Hipnoz. The interesting part of Hipnoz was the run-time dancing system that created dancing motions that synced to user’s music and got better with the user’s performance.
