The view from Winscape windows are usually way better than the real thing (with video)

“You’ll never get tired of the same view from these windows. Winscape consists of a pair of 46-inch 1080p plasma monitors mounted vertically, some high-resolution footage shot with a RED ONE camcorder, and a Mac Pro running software that splits the video into two feeds that fit into the twin screens,” Charlie White reports for DVICE.

“Ryan Hoagland’s masterpiece would’ve been impressive enough at that point, but he took it to the next level,” White reports. “He rigged up a necklace that shines an infrared beam at a Wiimote, which with the help of a little computer and video trickery, makes the image pan in the opposite direction you’re moving.”

    Ok, after watching the video, can you set it up so the hammerhead shark is trying to attack you at all times… put the baby in the room, turn off the lights, turn up the sound and lock the door
