The Progress-Index - At Home - - News - BY MARY BETH BRECK­EN­RIDGE

makes a vir­tual win­dow called eS­cape that’s a high-def­i­ni­tion LED screen in­side a case­ment win­dow. The screen plays videos of na­ture scenes, com­plete with sound _ and you can even add mu­sic to the mix, if you wish.

The eS­cape lets you choose from about three dozen scenes, each of which con­tains eight one-hour videos that can play se­quen­tially for eight hours. You can watch the moon rise over the Wind River Range in Wy­oming, for ex­am­ple, or en­joy water cascading over Maine’s Screw Auger Falls. Cus­tom­ized scenes are avail­able, too.

The win­dow comes with a choice of trim styles and fin­ishes to help it fit into your home.
