As some of you may know, I am rewriting my signal processing (aimed at art projects) in Lua. This tool is made to be used by two very different audiences that need to work together:
1. engineers doing machine learning / computer vision
Or if you view this along another axis:
1. parents, teachers
Once Rubyk is up on its legs again, it will make it easy to use Lua for all kinds of "sexy" things like turning the lights in your home on and off with a wiimote, recognizing your mum when she comes home (opencv) or creating stupid games with OpenGL.
Ok, here is my pitch: why not make a book on multimedia Lua with Rubyk ? People get to learn Lua in an easy to use environment (all libraries are provided in a single binary install) and they can directly create GUI applications that look nice (Qt) and work everywhere Rubyk is installable (Mac, Linux, Windows) ? They can even use Rubyk to create embedded applications.
Instead of having code snippets that change "Hello World" into "Hell with bold", you can have examples that use sockets to retrieve the user's emails and turn the TV off when he/she receives messages from his/here loved one.
OK, I'm out.
