The transparent desktop optical illusion

Transparent screen illusion

Yeah, you just take a shot of what's behind your screen and make it your desktop background. We'll spare you the "Why didn't we think of that?" biz as we just sit in awe of its completely obvious awesomeness. And yes, we tried it, and yes, it's more difficult than it looks to get it just right, especially if you don't have a laptop. It's all about the fold-down screen, dude.
