Interpretive Dance Interpreter

Scripting in the universal language of dance
  [vote for,

Interpretive Dance Interpreter (IDI) is a new, interpreted scripting language that is written through the physical expression of beauteous emotive joy, pain, love, fear, anger, class definitions, loops, data structures, and algorithms.

Very useful as an administrative tool because it includes built-in libraries to address systems issues like backing up a mail system (crouching and on your toes), logging output to a file (repeatedly, bending and straightening arms forward and to the right), even rebooting (the "human corkscrew"), and so on.

Comments are not necessary because the language is so self-explanatory that it touches the very depths of our souls. Best practices include stretching beforehand to reduce cramping.

       There are extant dance choreography scripting languages and systems out there.   

       Oh, wait... I see what you are driving at. You want to use whole body motion as an input and interaction method with a computing system. Hmmm. Interesting.   

       Isn't there a Playstation game out that uses a limited form of whole-body motion as an interaction method?

       I want to see a team of tech support mimes trying to explain to a choreographer/programmer why their IDI isn't working as expected. (link)

       so if i'd try to implement the interpreter actually using the universal scripting language of dance, would it do to just clap my hands two times ?   

       that's a [+] if i ever saw one
