If you're not up on Illumination, here's what it is and does:
Illumination Software Creator allows anyone to create their own software applications… without writing a single line of “code”.
The idea is simple: Arrange colorful building blocks of functionality however you like to create your own, unique, piece of software.
No reading large computer programming books. No steep learning curve.
One project creates apps for Android, iPhone, iPad, Desktops and HTML5 or Flash websites.
With full support for Windows, Linux and MacOS X, Illumination Software Creator allows you to work wherever you like. We won’t judge.
And, once you’ve created your new piece of software, you can (with a single click) build and run that new application on Windows, Linux or MacOS X desktops, Android devices, Nokia Internet Tablets (such as the N900)… and even as HTML5 or Flash powered rich websites.
Warning! Nerd information ahead!
Illumination even gives you the full Adobe Flex, Android Java, iOS Obj-C and Python source code to the projects you create.

I've played with it a bit and was surprised to discover it's quite powerful and not at all the programming toy it's appearance might lead you to believe. And studying the generated Python code (which is one of the few languages I'm fairly conversant with) gto me thinking in different ways about how I could better code my own Python projects.
Very cool little programming tool. And at $5, it's a steal even if you only get it to play with.
