How Much is your Mona Lisa?

It looks great in your living room!

Mona Lisa spatial VR NFT

Imagine if you could buy the Mona Lisa. It’d probably be very, very expensive, right? And even the version hanging in the louvre is most likely a copy.

It’s currently worth $970 Million.

Yes, I mean “The Painting” that comes up when you search for painting in Google. In real life it’s much smaller but it could crop to match an empty canvas on your wall easily.

It’s so small, yet so expensive!

How much would you pay to have a perfect, authorized by the Louvre copy on your living room wall? $500? $100? $50?

What if only 100 people in the entire world could have it? $10,000? $100,000?

This is the kind of stuff that goes through my head when I’m thinking about the future of spatial computing.

Current Vision Pro UI is just a lot of floating flat windows

No, I am not thinking about multiple floating finder windows around you or typing an email with just your index fingers.

Let me walk you through some of my ideas.

Things. In your space.

Permanent room decorations. Hear me out! It’s like NFT’s but actually making sense because you’re not decorating some obscure uncanny valley 3d space but your own, real house.

This can be a painting or a nice piece of furniture — just remember to not try and sit on it — obviously.

But imagine that instead of having a window floating whenever you want to put it, this particular object snaps in place to your space — when you decide to take your Vision Pro for a New York City subway ride (hi Casey!) it stays on your wall behind you fixed in place.
