Randy Barnett over at Volokh Conspiracy links to Bruce Branit's World Builder. It's an 8-minute film of a guy making a beautiful virtual world for his girlfriend. Touching. Beautiful. All those things.
Also worrisome. We are not many decades away from being able to build high-quality virtual worlds of some sort. So when other guys start building these beautiful Italian villages for their sweeties for Valentine's Day, you're going to have to do it too. Aaieee! Hopefully, you will be able to purchase these programs at some reasonable price.
On the bright side, my son Ben might be the one who sells a whole personal line of these things.
