Do we really need virtual dolphins?

Do we really need virtual dolphins? While I really find biomimetic research fascinating, I do sometimes wonder what it will end up actually producing. Then again, I am the guy who secretly wants it to produce battlesuits so I can play Iron Man or what have you. I'm shallow that way.

That reminds me of something here in Japan... they actually have a virtual aquarium- an entire building, in fact, of virtual aquariums. It sounded cool, but when I went it was just some VHS loop with a window of bubbled water in front. The worst part is, they charge heftily for admission. Only in Japan...
