Magic pengel research

Just come across the work of japanese associate professor Takeo Igarashi. Igarashi is the inventor of numerous methods to facilitate creativity via simple intuitive interfaces, including 3D modelling, animation, and curve manipulation. Some of is work is really lovely, reminiscent of moovl by Soda, Mario Paint and Mario Artist, a some of the work thats come out of MIT media lab.It turns out that his modelling interface was used by garakuta studio to create magic pengel and graffiti kingdom. Theres also a bunch of demos to download and play with. Its interesting to see work created in academic circles being picked up by game studios.
