This brings to mind a thought I've had numerous times that could be
incredibly cool, if the technological details could be worked out.

Allow the players to buy working video cameras, and share tapes with
their friends.

It probably would be a little out of place in your typical fantasy
world, unless you call it a scrying gem or somesuch, but it fits
perfectly into a more modern setting, and I imagine people would
have a blast playing around with it.
