TrumpScript icon (via GitHub) Regardless of what you think about The Donald, if you enjoy computers, you’ll love TrumpScript – “Making Python great again!” Created by Sam Shadwell, a student Rice University, according to his GitHub profile page. A few features listed on the page: All programs must end with America is great. Our language will automatically correct Forbes' $4.5B to $10B. In its raw form, TrumpScript is not compatible with Windows, because Trump isn’t the type of guy to believe in PC.

Chirp.io - Transmitting data via sound
A fascinating approach to solving the problem of data transmission without complicated pairing, NFC hiccups, or cables - Chirp.io. Pictures, links, contacts, and, as of 5/10, videos can all be transmitted from one smartphone to another simply through a 2-3 second sound burst, called a chirp. You don’t have to pair anything. No wires, no bluetooth configuration, no NFC setup - just give Chirp access to your mic to let it hear the chirp and, voila, simple data transmission.
Bjango (http://bjango.com) makes a nice, simple, but very effective color picker for Mac OS X - Skala Color. Why use a custom color picker? As their website points out - Skala Color provides color values in Hex, CSS RGBA, CSS HSLA, UIColor, NSColor, among others. So, if you’re building a web app, an Android app, or an iOS/OS X app, you’re covered. It is very easy to install and use. Both simple and powerful is an unusual pair of qualities, but Skala Color carries them both off very well.
