Here's an idea. When are they going to come out with a camera that has a user adjustable sensor? User can specify rotation, tilting, shift up/down or left/right, and position from flange. Turns every lens into a tilt-shift macro lens.

Pentax actually already does this in the K-7 and newer (K-5, K-5ii). It's only shift, though, not rotation or tilting, and it's only by a maximum of 2mm. Still, it's there, and it wouldn't be completely crazy to extend the image stabilization system to allow more complicated adjustments.
