LiveCodeLab is a special secret place where you can make fancy "on-the-fly" 3D visuals and play awesomely offbeat (literally) sounds.
"On-the-fly" meaning: as you type. Type just three letters: "box", and boom! A box appears. No clicking play, no waiting, no nothing.
LiveCodeLab has been used by several groups/people for:
it's a great way to get kids and adults interested in code, as it allows for instant feedback and easy pair programming. It helps introduce simple concept like loops, and much more complex like transform matrices!
It's a live coding tool that artists can use, misuse and tweak. Go full screen, hide the code and you can make incredible screen recordings with just a few lines of code!
Automatic coding in the browser is still quite a virgin territory. It's been done a lot with lisp-y languages, but not quite in the context of things like LiveCodeLab, so there is an opportunity to do quite some original work there.
Roadmap? Where we are going there are no roadmaps. If you insist, here is what's currently in our mind:
Make the code nicer (always the case, isn't it?)
Ways to share programs with others.
