I love the tropical island idea!

How long will it take until everybody will afford a wall-sized display
of a live ocean, and a network connection to deliver it? 10 years? 15 ?
(Hmm... I can just sit closer to my display now. And I do have a T3...)
As for Augmented Reality, I would love to see my friends sunbathing on
that sand, and my beach towel near them.

By the way, the Venice beach is dark now. A streaming video with a 12
hour delay would make it look a lot better. Time machine? I could also
rewind the waves on that beach if they are recorded, or fast-forward them.

What would you like to see?
