1.Visual Programming Environment
Unlike conventional computer programming methods that rely on programming language, these works offer a programming environment centered on visual images. By touching and manipulating objects on a screen, users-even without knowing programming language-can program the computer and have it perform various tasks.

2.Media Programming Environment
Software environments in this category permit users to insert, create, or restructure sounds or images. Computers using this software have metamedia capabilities that allow users to fuse various types of media.



3.CommunityWare (software that makes connections between people)
This communication software helps people connect and form interactive communities. Workshops will be held to introduce this program.



4.Virtual Environment
Users visit imaginary environments in the computer and create creatures to inhabit them. The creatures can even be made into permanent residents in these environments.


5.Web Browser Historical View and Alternatives
