Using OpenType features, simple strings of numbers are automatically transformed into charts. The visualized data remains editable, allowing for hassle-free updates and styling.
The site details how to use it, shows a video of it in action inside Illustrator, and all the different graph types you can make. There's also some chatter about it on the Behance site.
