Field - a hybrid textual and visual programming environment

I just came across this and thought it might be of interest to LtU readers:

It's a hybrid textual and visual programming environment developed by the MIT Media Lab, with some pretty interesting ideas. For example: you can arrange blocks of code visually and scrub over them with an execution marker; you can embed bits of code which execute inside other applications; and it can show graphical representations of values.

Any thoughts?

The fastest route into Field

(full disclosure: I'm the lead developer of Field).

The fastest way to get an overview of the project is to look at the videos embedded down the right hand side of this page .

In any case, if you described Field as a project that's trying to remake a corner of digital art to be interesting to a corner of the lambda-the-ultimate community you wouldn't be far wrong...
