More than his vast fortune or jet-soled boots or even Pepper Potts, the thing I envy Tony Stark for most are his computers. Here's a video of how motion design company Prologue brought his fantastic holographic interfaces to life.

This Arc Reactor is just a replica, so it won't allow you to power a bionic suit that flies around and punches through walls. It will, however, make your desk that much more dorky. And that's something.
