What interesting uses for IPv6 are out there? [closed]

IPv6 is reasonably easy to setup these days via 6to4 tunneling, but once done, what does one do with it? What interesting services are out there already using IPv6 or providing exclusive features over IPv6? One very basic example would be Google, which provide an animated logo over IPv6:

"Sixxs.net has a list of IPv6 stuff one can play around with:

The most interesting of those is probably the IPv6-only tracker and file upload service:

Well, if you visit http://www.kame.net/ over IPv6, you get the animated swimming Kame instead of the static image you get over IPv4. :-)

IPV6, it is the future, just not any time soon for mass deployment... Unlike IPv4 where you can figure out the basic network in your head, IPv6 is just so much more complicated for basic things... not saying impossible, just a lot harder than IPv4.

Anyway, back to the topic, apart from the above, I am not really sure there are many interesting uses of IPv6 over anything that can be done on IPv4... in theory it means every object you own can have a public ip address (kettle, oven, fridge and more!) but until there is a real practical reason to do so, there is not really much point... and again, this can be achieved in IPv4, there just isn't really enough for everyone."
