The next computer power hurdle

What is the next hurdle for our computer hardware? What's the high-end task that we wish our computers were powerful enough to perform right now, but they just can't do yet? Video editing is probably the most demanding consumer-level application right now, and we've already licked real-time 3D rendering, and within certain limits, we have real-time video processing, too. Fifteen years ago we were impressed when a computer could play MP3s smoothly. These days we expect that level of processing and a lot more from much more humble hardware. So, at the very top of the scale, what is left?

PS - I'm betting on more applications for real-time video processing.
PPS - Like augmented reality.
