I've always wanted to paint a roughly square room with a map of the world... projected from the INSIDE. Like you were standing at the center of a globe, looking out at transparent walls.

Above you is the Arctic. Below you is Antarctica.

In the middle of the room I'd have a lamp, with a half-silvered bulb, that would rotate 365 degrees every 24 hours, so I could always just walk into the room and see the Terminator line... where the Sun was rising right now... where it was setting...

Man... I'd love that room.

You can get a window on one...

And while it's a pale shadow of what you're shooting for, I've been using Earthdesk since version 4.

Yeah... but there is something about sitting INSIDE a globe that fascinates me...
