"Honey, I think I have something in my prosthetic eye."

"Why yes, darling, you do. It seems to be a tiny seascape, and the lighthouse is even lit with with a tiny LED."

Yes, you could have multiple D'Eyeoramas so that you get different scenes. There might even be a way to have a DIY kit to create your own.

Possibly, someday, with nanotechnology, you could even have an animated scene. But don't hold your breath for that.

       He: Honey, what do you think of these quality embalmers?
Her: Not seen them before.
He: Yes, they blanch your skin until it goes transparent, remove your internal organs from your rib-cage, and turn it into a great big goldfish bowl with interior lighting. Then, at your funeral, they make you glow with a heavenly twist of the potentiometer - and from the inside, the light reflects off all the goldfish and it looks as though there are little sparkling things wafting around inside your ribs - it's supposed to look quite spooky, all told.
Her: Oh, yes I have heard of them - Weren't they called Die-orama or something similarly punny?

       Die-orama?

       When you stand on your head does it snow?

       //Die-orama?// Yes, 'Die-orama' - because the person out of which the display is constructed has already 'die'-d - and that it's a 3d model/display for view. It's a pun you see, like the idea, only instead of D'eyeorama (the wordplay being based on the portmanteaux of 'eye' and 'diorama' to make D'eyeorama in this instance - using the French contraction D' for some un-described reason - perhaps the inventor was French) it's die-orama - the portmanteaux being constructed from the words die (v. to end living, to move from a state of life to death) and diorama (n. 3d display thingy) Sure, it is a bit of a stretch to describe a human goldfish bowl (however cleverly lit) as a diorama, but meh, you can't have everything.

       Nice one. :D

       ...and I thought this was going to be a public safety display explaining the risks of not wearing a seatbelt while being driven at high speed through Paris by a drunk guy.

       normzone, I think it most definitely should snow when you stand on your head. A tremendous oversight on my part.   

       So, zen_tom, are you proposing your own idea here or what? There's an "add" link to the left and up.

       [zen_tom]: I was making the same pun, not having seen your anno when I did so. D'oh-orama!
phoenix, Oct 07 2008
  

       Sorry [Noexit] I was being slightly naughty - I'd move it, but I can't seem to get it past the massive pun in the idea title.   

       Watch out! There's more:   

       Dai O'Rama - a Welsh/Irish incarnation of Vishnu.   

       Dali-orama - a 3d display of melting clocks and long-legged elephants, probably sodomising a dog.   

       Tie O'Ramallah - a Palestinian retailler of scarves, cufflinks, ties and other gentleman's accessories.   

       Horrendous puns aside, the idea is kind of cute.
zen_tom, Oct 08 2008
  

       It's almost incredible no one's done any kind of "Diarrh-ama"-themed pun yet.
hippo, Oct 08 2008
  

       You forgot the Dalai Rama, a crazy mixed-up saffron-robed, multi-appendaged deity.

Or a method of showing films in the cinema, presented as if viewed on a TV in the back of a speeding, out of control vehicle.

       'Tonights feature "Zombies From Beyond the School Cafeteria" is being shown in Die-O-Rama.'   

       And for Americans that just can't get past skin color I also have an idea for Dye Obama.
