Exclamation Transparent Desktop

On my fifteenth attempt I was finally ninja enough to find the hidden "Transparent Desktop" option in Windows XP. Give it a go yourselves.

About four shots.
The actual alignment is really done in the second photograph, then you can move the camera quite easily to match up the background.

These Guys are a shit-load better at it than me.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but you need a digital camera, and you have to take a pic of what's behind your screen, and arrange the moniter in the same position?


I thought their was actually something in the back of the LCD screen that made a background from what was behind the screen. Didnt' think this was that easy...

nah, baz is just a whiz with electronics and ran up a feed from behind his monitor, using optical camoflage technology.... lol

seriously... get a camera... get a photo.... get photo on pc... apply to desktop.... the only tricky thing is getting the bastard thing to line up properly.

oh, and on that link.. the one of three laptops behind each other has to be the best...

(how the hell do you spell camoflage?? argh...)

Nice backdrop, though more pool and plants would've been more fun than the corner of the table.
