Challenging Idea 😱 Virtual Screen Device - well really just a view

Just if anyone is pondering about the next great thing they could write for Pythonista. I have a idea...
A view that simulates different hardware devices. If you add a view to the vd, it is shown exactly as it would be on the hardware device. not sure it's possible, but would be great to have.
@omz gave a example of this using objc a long time ago, tricking the screen size. It was cool. Not sure it still works or not. I am just sure someone could come up with a better way. Eg, on a big screen device have a iphone graphic showing the view inside the graphic. If the view is the same or larger than the device it's running on, could be scaled down to size.
Just food for thought
