I can not help but think this is the perfect technology to use on the server side as the engine for a MMOG. The idea of a "Tick" and summarizing all of the events that occur within that time is a difficult problem on game servers, I would imagine.

Being able to query where users are in real-time on a Map (Java or otherwise) is helpful as well.

Just a thought -
