similar google motion charts and most impotant it should work on ipad
As Jamie says, Highcharts already supports this, you just need to loop over datasets and run Series.setData or Point.update for each step.
But we are currently working on a set of demos to demonstrate this, which will make it easier for you to set up, as you can copy-paste from our samples.
There’s a plugin for it: https://github.com/TorsteinHonsi/Motion-Highcharts-Plugin
Of course, a motion chart is just a series of charts put together with controls to loop through them. Easy enough to set up, depending on how complex you want the controls to be.
Build the data arrays for each state of the chart, and use a setInterval loop to update the data or series at whatever speed you want it to play.
With Google shutting down development of Motion Charts, it would be nice to have an alternative. Especially since Hans Rosling's made Motion Chart so popular. :) What Torstein Hønsi is doing is simply amazing - I expect HIghcharts will continue to do amazing things. :)
is it planed for short coming development?

This would be fantastic; the effectiveness of this style of multi-variate, animated chart has huge potential.
