Animata is an excellent open source real-time animation software. Check it out if you haven't already heard about it: http://animata.kibu.hu/
Now the only problem with it is that there are no image processing capabilities inside Animata. Therefore, it would be extremely useful, if you could render Animata scenes in something like Quartz Composer.
Michael Forrest has already made a renderer for Processing AND for the iPhone
I'm far from being an expert, but I would imagine that this means that most of the work is already done. All the classes are here http://github.com/michaelforrest/animata-iphone/tree/master Someone would just need to make them into a QC plugin. Correct me if I'm wrong and this actually is a lot more difficult than I imagine.
I would love to do this myself, but it would probably take me a few years. Kineme guys would probably do it in an afternoon. Any takers? I will be happy to help in any way I can (testing etc.)
