The program is called "Sora" (v0.75). I have just spent a few minutes on it so I dunno much about it at this point. Roughly speaking, it is a tool that allows you to manipulate a 2D image in a 2.5D form by mapping the image to a 3D wire frame model. But this Sora tool in its current form is not very usable. It is slow, and somewhat undocumented.

The performance problem has been fixed! Its available on the developer's website. Yeah, the one above.

Hmm... I see that this project is stuck at the graphics stage, so why not doing the coding part first and add the graphics later when it's more complete? Is there any software that creates an interactive thingie on the desktop that can do various stuff without starting from scratch? The only thing I can think of is Yahoo! Widgets and I already asked a question in answers.yahoo if it's possible to convert a widget into a standalone application. And even if someone is able to make a complete .sora file how are you going to make any use of it?

What's the point? The most challenging part here is the art. Frames and frames of animation. Unless we are talking about what was done with 7-tan. I don't know much about it, but its something like stretching a texture on a bubble. Doesn't look that great and very limited. Can imitate head bobbing, but not much help when we try to do gestures. Even if we put out source code for the entire thing(if say it was finished, and it isn't), what would happen next?
More importantly it is impossible. You need graphics to see if the new code works.
