BitMan for your TV

Video Bulb allows you to play a continuous animation of Ryota Kuwakubo's BitMan (.avi) on your TV.

I guess this means the era of plug-and-play digital video artworks has actually arrived, at least for some simpler works. I guess it's just a matter of time before more complex art work is available with similar technology. The only limiting factors that occurr to me immediately is electrical power and storage, and both of these are improving every year. How long before I can get a Wilfred Lumia box in this format (or something more contemporary)?
