Kite Aerial Photography by Scott Haefner | ptbonita
Ok, earlier I asked the question of what you would do with a 10Gb/s connection to your house. I just stumbled across this site of beautiful pictures taken from a kite, some of which are 360 panoramas like the one in the link below.

That got me to thinking of what it would take to updated the 360 degree panoramas in real time so you could experience looking around from the kite as if you were there. Now THAT would take some bandwidth and processing horsepower, I'm thinking.

And then I remembered that various media technology companies are working on pretty much exactly this for use (at least initially) at sporting events. The idea is that you could look around the even just like you were there, choosing your own objects of interest to look at, and potentially choosing which camera point of view you wanted to look through.

The obvious problem these companies are running up against (besides the development of their equipment)? Bandwidth to the home. There you go, answered my own question. Anyone have other ideas of what a 10Gb/s pipe is good for (besides the obvious porn jokes)?

Check out the site. The pictures are pretty cool.
