Create Stellar Views for Every Window

Renters no longer need to settle for the crappy view their cheap rent gets them. Thanks to Santa Clara, Calif.-based engineer, Ryan Hoagland, tenets with basement apartments, windows facing buildings or simply no windows at all can create their own virtual window using nothing more than a Wiimote (for the Nintendo Wii), a computer, flat-screen televisions and some fancy software.

"The idea is to make you feel like you're living in all sorts of strange places," says Hoagland. "You can live in exotic places, fancy places or downright silly places like underwater or on a space station."
