I'm amazed by how far videogame/computer graphics have progressed. It's getting so you can't tell computer-generated images from real-life ones. But then, can we even be certain that everything is not just a computer simulation? Which leads to this story from Wired magazine:

Quantum mechanic Seth Lloyd says we really are controlled by a computer.

Seth Lloyd is the kind of guy you'd like to have a beer with. Between gulps, the MIT prof will impart the details of how the universe really works. And if you order another, he'll give you a summary of one of the most mind-boggling ideas emerging in science today. His new book, Programming the Universe, is a plainspoken tale of how the universe is - tell me if you've heard this before - one very large quantum computer. - Kevin Kelly
