R was specifically created for Statistical Programming (for Data Analysis) and is currently great for Data Science and Machine Learning. However, what it can be used for is far beyond those mentioned above. The following are examples of what R can be used for.
Wait a minute R? Yes, R! R may look like the most unlikely program for such a thing, but it can be used to develop games. Well, what type of games? You can see some games developed in R here.
While you may not be able to make animated movies like those from Disney, you could really make a lot of real animations using R. You could animate graphs, charts, pictures e.t.c. Find out more about R animations here.
Finally, while there are programming languages that were primarily designed to handle the three things discussed above, using R is of great advantage to an R programmer who may want to do such things, as the time that would have been spent learning a new language can be saved, provided the programmer is not under compulsion to use any particular tools. Now you know that R is really useful beyond Arithmetic.
