Fake skylights for claustrophobic homeowners
The potential for these products is huge! Think of the retention rates when everyone in the office has a virtual corner office due to the luminous virtual windows. Adding a virtual skylight with a summery scene to your house could be the ticket to fighting Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) or claustrophobia. If so you might even be able to write pass the improvement off as a health benefit. Additionally these fake windows may be just the thing for your exhibitionist side! Now you can enjoy the feeling of relaxing or partaking in other activities wearing only your birthday suit directly in front of the window without the pesky threat of public indecency!
People have long used mirrors and other illusions to make a room appear bigger or brighter but this solution from The Sky Factory seems a little more elegant and high tech. It isn't as high tech or nerdy if you will, as my goal to procure several HD cameras and large LCD monitors to make a wall in my office reflect one of several locations worldwide but I think it will suffice.
