Windows For Windowless Offices   (+8, -3)  [vote for, against]
With backlighting

Full-sized windowframes that are mountable on the wall of your office. Has a photograph of the outdoors in your office's neighborhood (you could even take the picture yourself), blown up, mounted, and backlit with simple rope lighting, or perhaps electroluminescent sheeting (if it can be made white).

Juts out just a little bit like a real windowframe, with the photograph countersunk.

Sturdy enough for the installation of venetian blinds, or you could just mount them to the wall above.

Plugs into any wall outlet, and has a tastefully discreet dimmer.

Cheap, simple, and at least moderately more aesthetic than the fluorescent lamps over your head.

He's selling alternative aqua-rium lighting systems.

what [jhom] said. All the news sets and talk shows have these. They even have fake *weather* going on.

Apparently baked. Mutter mutter. I'm sort of curious as to why I didn't find this on Google.

I looked under "Fake Window Office" on google and it was an add at the top of the page.

Must be in the order. I typed in "Fake Office Window" and got...well, bupkus.

in stead of a still picture, why not wire it up to a webcam that shows you the real outside (or an outside of choice ofcourse :) )
