Beautiful. Always wanted to have planetarium at home. This is an idea...

"Black Shoals Stock Market Planetarium is an animated night sky that is also a live representation of the world's stock markets, with each star representing a traded company. Fed by massive streams of live financial information, the stars glimmer and pulse, immediately flickering brighter whenever their stock is traded anywhere in the world. The stars slowly move across the sky, clustering together or drifting apart in response to the shifting affinities of their respective companies, growing or shrinking as the company's fortunes change. Digital creatures, a form of artificial life, inhabit this world, feeding on the light released by the stars, breeding, dying and slowly evolving while trying to learn to live in this strange artificial ecology into which they've been born."

Black Shoals

... What is a man
If his chief good and market of his time
Be but to sleep and feed? (c)
