Window Hack – How to Make Virtual Windows!

Personally, I prefer real views but if your house doesn’t have an oceanview, perhaps facing your neighbor’s wall, do not worry as you can install a virtual window that lets you display great sceneries like the famed San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, aquarium, or anything you can think of.

Two 46-inch Panasonic TC-P46G10 plasma screens bring the images to life. They are fed by an Apple Mac Pro workstation in the adjacent room running custom OS X software called Winscape. Using the

HDTV Hack – How to Build an UHF HDTV Antenna!

With HDTV signals freely available, for those of you who want to get free HDTV channels, you might want to look into making your own custom HDTV antenna such as the one featured here.   I know it can help a lot since this guy’s already tested it and says it’s better than his Yogi antenna.
