comment Augmented Reality online video player
@gnat: I think half of the question is a software recommendation, but I don't think there's a COTS solution available for this so the other half of the question is more about the strategy to architect and implement this yourself. That in itself makes it an interesting challenge, so I wouldn't vote to close this.

comment Is having 'Util' classes a cause for concern?
@bdrx: In general NameUtils stuff bug me to no end because if it sits under a clearly labelled package name, I would already know it's a utility class (and if not, would figure it out quickly from looking at the API). It's as annoying to me as people declaring stuff as SomethingInterface, ISomething, or SomethingImpl. I was sort of OK with such artefacts when coding in C and not using IDEs. Today I'd generally have no need for such things.

comment Is having 'Util' classes a cause for concern?
@bdrx: to me a collection object would be either StringsCollectionTypeHere if you want a concrete implementation. Or a more specific name if these strings have specific meaning in the context of your app. For this particular case, Guava uses Strings for its string-related helpers, as opposed to StringUtils in Commons Lang. I find it perfectly acceptable, it just means to me that the classes handles String object or is a general purpose class to manage Strings.

comment Does this kind of programming language exist?
Xtend has a similar approach in Java. though you can't really say it's interpreted. It's a source to source transformative process from Xtend to Java source, before you then compile to Java bytecode. It's definitely not the only language around doing this sort of thing.

Anon downvoter, please in the future be so kind as to say why you think this doesn't exactly answer the OP's question.
