Though efficient and amazing, coding isn't typically thought of as a beautiful process, but with the Marmoset app for Chrome browsers, any snippet of code can look like a screenshot from a high-brow science fiction thriller. The app lets coders add colors and perspective to their code, turning once-flat pieces of information into images worthy of the functions that the content serves.

The Marmoset app is most useful for professional coders who, when presenting slideshows at meetings, often find non-coder viewers yawning and checking their watches. By adding dynamism to an otherwise boring image, Marmoset assures that even people who are essentially ignorant of code can begin to appreciate its deep beauty -- and in a digital world filled with coded technology, that is a powerful assurance.
