    Displaying images in the terminal has actually been possible for a while (through sixel and friends) and video playback has been demonstrated as well (https://github.com/jD91mZM2/termplay). Terminals also have had mouse support for years now (most ncurses based applications have mouse support out of the box and xterm and friends will often work with mice just fine as well). Really, it's only a matter of picking a modern terminal emulator. I like Wezterm but others prefer Kitty. There are more options, of course, pick the one you like most.

    port of the OpenGL gears demo to kitty terminal graphics protocol

    I named sixels because those are widely supported. There are other protocols (the iTerm2 protocol, for example) that can display even higher resolutions. There's also the Kitty protocol for displaying graphics. Take GLKitty for example, that's much more than I'll ever need from a terminal. The most practical use case I've seen is a terminal based file manager with image previews and they don't need that high a resolution.
