Wii Remote used to create interactive virtual windows

Tired of your crummy, ground-floor apartment's view of that dank, garbage-strewn alleyway? Here's a clever solution for your scenic dilemma: Just install some virtual windows which, using a Wii Remote, can detect your movements and provide you with a number of stunning, head-tracking vistas.

Said technology is current under development by a tech-savvy couple who were recently highlighted by Reuters. The "Winscape" technology still needs a few refinements -- for instance, the necklace you have to wear to have your movements tracked is horrific, though that might be remedied when the couple switches out the Wiimote with a Kinect unit. Check out a video demonstration of the technology over on Reuters.
