One of the Wii U's coolest new abilities is the the panoramic view, which allows the tablet controller to act like a movable window into a game's world. That means your view into a game isn't limited by what you see on the TV or what direction your character is looking. Check out the video above to see what we mean.

We saw this capability at E3 last summer, though this particular demo is new to us. Say what you want about tablet gaming (we heard you weren't too happy about the next Xbox's rumored tablet component), but you've got to admit this looks cool. Or not; either way, let us know in the comments or on Twitter.
