Innovation is one way to get ahead and Samsung is hoping its new 46-inch LCD panel will get the interest of many. So what’s new from the South Korean company? It’s the new Transparent Smart Window, which, as the name suggests, is transparent and allows the user to get a glance of the view at the back of the screen.
The LCD panel functions just like your regular computer display, but the difference in Samsung’s latest creation is that you get an outside view too aside from your screen. Fancy checking out your favourite websites while getting a glimpse of what’s going on in the living room, it’s possible with the Transparent Smart Window.
Technically speaking, the transparency of the new LCDs are around 15%-20%, way above the transparency of current LCDs at only 5%. While practical usage of the new LCD panel is still up in the air, the innovation unveiled at CES 2012 certainly turned heads and it’s only a matter of time before it goes mainstream.
