Why openFrameworks is important?

openFrameworks is a tool for creativity based on C++, already having spread across many countries like the US and Japan, and now developing quickly in China. It plays an important role at the top level of many cutting edge fields like new media art, interactive design, the "internet of things", robotics, etc.
