A lot of outfits are trying to create "enhanced" ebooks but so far none has really taken.
Theoretically epub3 will *someday* allow the creation of the ebook equivalent of the 90's era Multimedia CD-ROMS which themselves were versions of coffee table books but I wouldn't hold my breath.
The closest equivalent today are the app-based publications and those aren't really ebooks.

The only likely differentiators for the near-term are going to be price and user restrictions (DRM, TTS, lending) and nobody has yet tried to link the two.
