||It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye.
||A theme park based on a Renaissance painting. Why,
literally *dozens* of tickets.
||There's your theme music (link).
||One of the things we're actually working on for our
virtual gallery (see link), though is highly
ambitious, is a fall through so the avatar can get
"in the picture" on at least some of the works, ala
What Dreams May Come. Capturing the geometry,
especially of classical paintings, is actually not too
bad, though Bosch level of detail might strain the
graphics processors. Replicating the painted
humans as 3D objects is not possible for something
that would realistically run on your iPad, but we'll
probably use some fake 2D/3D mixing for that.
Creating effects of something like Sunflowers in a
real scene is also possible, and would be a lot of
fun to do -- though of course yes, the size of the
audience for such entertainment is debatable.
That's why we also have a casino :)

||Yes, well, nakedness, lewdness and depravity, orgies, sado-
masochism ... are you sure that won't sell ... ?
