NaturalMotion Ltd. is the first company to create 3D character animation software based on Dynamic Motion Synthesis (DMS), a technology that utilizes Adaptive Behaviors and artificial intelligence to simulate the human-nervous system. Based on research conducted at Oxford University on the control of body movements, NaturalMotion’s euphoria synthesizes 3D character animation in real time on PLAYSTATION®3, Xbox 360® and PC. Having debuted in Rockstar Games’ record-breaking Grand Theft Auto IV, euphoria is also featured in LucasArts’ Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.
