Before you know it they'll have a giant warehouse full of these things with an uninterruptable power supply to save thousands of peoples life forces. This is great movie fodder! The spheres are all connected into one interface, creating a virtual world, so then we have a hero enter that world for some life or death reason, likely related to his father.

Hey! That's a lot simpler than Cryonics! This could be the next great scam! Who's in with me?

All right! We need to come up with a real sell point though to convince the general public. Like something with holograms.
I know, we should figure out how to create holograms of the deceased, generating answers to any descendent's questions over death wishes and such. We could effectively rule the world by creating answers in favor of photography. Here comes an OVF SOny a750!

Don't worry. Being "Normal" is being just as insane as everyone else.
