10 Most Curious Programming Languages

#10 Whitespace
Developers: Edwin Brady and Chris Morris

Whitespace was released on April 1st 2003. Most people took it as an April fool joke, which it wasn’t. Instead of the usual programming languages that ignored whitespace characters, this program accepted only the whitespaces. Thus tabs, spaces and newlines have meaning and are considered syntax in this language.
The language can be very much useful for spies. Imagine you have a top secret program that you don't want anyone to see. What do you do? Simply print it out and delete the file, ready to type in at a later date. Nobody will know that your blank piece of paper is actually vital computer code!

#9 Chef
Designer: David Morgan-Mar
Chef is an interesting programming language which got released in 2002. The program looks like cooking recipes with variables named after the ingredients. The stacks are called “mixing bowls” or “baking dishes” and the instructions like “mix” and “stir” are required to carry out the functions. The main principle of language design is: program recipes should not only generate valid output, but be easy to prepare and delicious. For instance, the instructions look like:
Take *ingredient* from refrigerator. — read an integer from standard input and store it into the given variable.
Put *ingredient* into [nth] mixing bowl. — push the value of the variable on the top of the bowl.

#8 Shakespere
This programming language was designed by Jon Aslund and Karl Hasselstrom as a part of their lab project. Like the Chef programming language, Shakespeare Programming Language(SPL) is designed to make programs appear to be something other than programs; in this case, Shakespearean plays. The language has title, characters, acts and scenes, enter and exit. Characters are named like "Romeo" and "Juliet", which enter into dialogue with each other for performing functions. The programs are easily understood as it is written in the form of a drama.

#7 Velato

Designer: Daniel Temkin
Velato, an esoteric programming language uses MIDI files as the source code. According to Wiki, “Programs in Velato, are defined by the pitch and order of notes. Velato is intended to allow for flexibility in composition, so functional programs will not necessarily sound like random notes. There is a tendency for Velato programs to have jazz-like harmonies.”

#6 Go
Developer: Google
You may not believe this. But the Go Programming language was developed by the search giant Google, which was released in 2009.
According to the website, “Go is an open source programming environment that makes it easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software.”
When the language turned 3 recently, it stated that the first stable version Go 1 programs are confident and their programs will continue to compile and run without change, in many environments.

#5 Piet
Developer: David Morgan-Mar
The code of this esoteric programming language resembles an abstract painting. ‘Piet’ was named after Piet Mondrian, the Dutch painter.
The language uses 20 separate colours, where each colour corresponds to a particular behavior. They are arranged in blocks. The compilation is guided by a "pointer" that moves around the image, from one continuous coloured region to the next. Procedures are carried through when the pointer exits a region.

#4 Brainf**k
Developer: Urban Muller
The esoteric language came out in 1993 was designed to challenge and amuse programmers. It stood out from other programming languages due to its extreme minimalism. He made it with intention of designing a language which could be implemented with the smallest possible compiler. However, the language is not suitable for practical use. The developer was also able to write a 200 byte compiler for the language. 

#3 Befunge

Developer: Chris Pressey
While Brainf**k was designed for minimalism, Befunge was created in 1993 for complexity. The developer created this esoteric language with the goal of being as difficult to compile as possible. It is a two dimensional ASCII based programming language.

#2 Omgrofl
Developer: Juraj Borza

The esoteric
 language created in 2006 has variables and keywords resembling Internet slang. The name comes from combining the slang "words" omg and rofl. All the variables in this language should be slang like ‘lol,’ ‘lool’ and so on. Rofl is actually one of Omgrofl's commands.

#1 Ook!

Developer: David Morgan-Mar
This language is similar to Brainf**k, except that the instructions are changed into Orangutan words. Both are developed by the same guy. It is a joke esoteric language which belongs to “strange programming language” category and has only three syntax elements– Ook./Ook?/Ook!

For instance: Ook. Ook? Refers to move the pointer to the right.

LOVE SLOW DANCING??? must watch this....

The robot (or mannequin) is an illusionary street dance style – often confused with popping – that attempts to imitate a dancing robot or mannequin. Roboting gained fame after Michael Jackson used the dance when he performed "Dancing Machine" with his brothers, and later performed the dance during his solo career in songs such as Billie Jean.

The robot is simply the illusion of being a robot. Movements of the robot are normally started and finished with a dimestop (a very abrupt stop), to give the impression of motors starting and stopping, but poppers have also been known to do the robot with a pop to the beat. As long as the illusion of being a robot is maintained, it is considered the robot. The dance was created in 1967.
Robot dancing is often considered a subsection of popping because poppers often include the robot in their routines, sometimes adding pops to the beat while maintaining the illusion of a robot, but the robot also exists as its own dance and is sometimes considered a performance rather than a dance when the performer is imitating a robot without any music. When done without music it is considered to be mime, instead of dance. Street theater often featured mimes who did a mechanical man or puppet style illusion, without music. In the late 1960s the style was used while social dancing to funk or soul music. Charles "Robot" Washington was not the first to strictly imitate a robot as a mime, however he and his partner "Robot Ann" were the first to socially couple dance the style to music at parties and clubs, and it was at this point it became a party dance and later combined with other illusion styles to form today's popping style. It is commonly known as "Robotics". Roboting has also been likened to the jazz-era folk dance of puppeting (a style also appreciated in some forms of experimental ballet), whereby the dancer would emulate the mechanical movements of a simple musical box doll.

Highly flexible touch sensors are appearing in a range of gadgets

Highly flexible, film-based touch sensors are entering the smartphone and tablet markets.* They are also extending touch capabilities into a range of new consumer and industrial products. Using roll-to-roll metal mesh technology, they provide a high-performance alternative to existing touch sensors. Larger, lighter, sleeker, curved and edgeless designs can now be developed for handheld devices. Thinner sensor stacks with flawless touch performance, excellent optical clarity, low sheet resistance and low power consumption are enabling designers to turn unique, futuristic concepts into functional designs at lower total system costs compared to previous market alternatives.

Google Smart-Glasses

Google smart glasses 2013Google revealed that “Project Glass,” which takes all the functionality of a smartphone and places it into wearable eyeglasses, is something that a small team of their engineers have been working on for over two years now. The clear lens could display anything from text messages and reminders, to video charts and maps with turn-by-turn directions. They may also be capable of taking photos and recording videos; all through simple voice commands, according to the concept Google released earlier this year.
Although the finished product is still some way off, it’s believed that we may see it on shelves sometime in Q4 of 2013.

ROLL LAPTOP Amazing new Technology 2012

Must see This.... Incredibly nice Tech.

Post Your Comments....

A wireless battery charging technology, or much more?

As I read Tom's Hardware Guide this morning I kept thinking to myself, “Tesla, Tesla, Tesla.” For those of you who don't know, in the early part of the 20th century a man named Nikola Tesla was in the process of offering to the world something he called “free energy.” The free energy idea was built around a central tower (or series of towers around the globe) that, through some unknown means, would generate or induce a field that isolated receivers could pick up and draw from wirelessly. The prototype power generation station he was using transmitted enough to power full-size electric cars at high speeds, even over dozens of miles.

He began work on a full-size version of his tower, one sufficient for powering the entire state (or a larger area) and was receiving funding to do it. When the financiers came to him and said, “This system is great. There's no infrastructure (wires, poles, etc.) to add expense to distribution, but how do we charge for it?” Tesla essentially told them, “You don't, it's free.” Shortly after that his funding dried up and the tower project was physically dismantled by explosives (citation: “Tesla: Man out of Time” by Margaret Cheney).
The power source discussed in the article linked to below has the potential of being viewed as nothing less than that, albeit on a much, much smaller scale (only transmitting power a few meters). If you read the description of how the device works, it's very Tesla-esque, meaning that there is no reason why it would work based on what most of us would understand through the basic physics courses we all took. However, the researchers claim it does work, although no production devices have been built yet (I'm guessing none ever will be).

It works by creating a non-radiative electromagnetic (EM) field around the transmitter. Unlike regular EM fields that propagate in all directions simultaneously, this one does not (and therein lies the part where most of our heads begin to explode). Instead of radiating its energy outwardly, it simply sets up conditions whereby the conveyance of energy from one point to another–and directly between the two points–could become real if a sink (receiver) of some kind was created to draw the energy from the transmitter. It is from within that system or design where the location/opportunity (whatever you want to call it) could be employed to remotely charge a battery with no general power loss through extraneous radiation.
By attenuating the non-radiative field correctly, only specific devices tuned to the generated (non)field could receive power from the device, allowing remote power charging (and even power generation) without radiative EM sources of high power drain as would be required today through traditional knowledge and use of EM fields as most of us understand them. This design, i.e., setting up the conditions that allow the conveyance to take place, allows power to be sent directly to the receiver in a type of point-to-point manner, as if there were wires between them and without power loss, as any power not being received is simply reabsorbed by the transmitter.
I think it amazing to imagine that nearly 75+ years after his initial work, we could actually find out that not only was Tesla right, but that all of our lifetimes we could've had (everyone in the world could've had) free energy from this system, and done so this entire time, if only his visionary, genius, eidetic (photographic) memory mind had been allowed to thrive outside of the political realities of the day.
Bear in mind that many will debunk Tesla's abilities, but if this discovery is true and can be scaled as Tesla suggested, there would no longer be any need for wires going to our homes. Or for internal combustion engines to be in our cars, our farm tractors, or anything else. No more power outtages, no more remote places without power. Light and heat could be supplied to the poor and isolated. This discovery could increase man's potential significantly, and all could be generated from a central source, or a few central sources.
Sound crazy? Right now we have the Voyager and Pioneer space probes we launched in the 1970s exhibiting an unexpected acceleration toward the Sun. We have no explanation for that effect because, even after accounting for everything we know or theorize, they're not where they should be. The Pioneer spacecraft we launched in the early 1970s are approximately 249,000 miles short of where they should be right now, with no explanation.
So the fact remains that there is some hard evidence suggesting we do not know all that we think we know. This Tesla fellow could have been right all along.

Android is a Linux-based operating system designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers. It is currently developed by Google in conjunction with the Open Handset Alliance. Initially developed by Android Inc, whom Google financially backed and later purchased in 2005, Android was unveiled in 2007 along with the founding of the Open Handset Alliance, a consortium of 86 hardware, software, and telecommunication companies devoted to advancing open standards for mobile devices.
Google releases the Android code as open source, under the Apache License. The Android Open Source Project (AOSP), led by Google, is tasked with the maintenance and further development of Android.Additionally, Android has a large community of developers writing applications ("Apps") that extend the functionality of devices, written primarily in a customized version of Java. They are available for download through Google Play or third-party sites. In October 2012, there were approximately 700,000 apps available for Android, and the estimated number of applications downloaded from Google Play (and the now-defunct Android Market) was 25 billion.
The first Android-powered phone was sold in October 2008,and by the end of 2010 Android had become the world's leading smartphone platform, overtaking Symbian which held the record previously.. It had a worldwide smartphone market share of 75% during the third quarter of 2012,with 500 million devices activated and 1.3 million activations per day. Application of the operating system has also moved beyond mobile phones and tablets; amongst others, televisions, smartbooks and cameras have been released running Android.
