A Transparent View

As you may recall, I’ve been talking about transparent LCD technology for some time now, and  I’m thrilled to share some exciting news with you. Samsung has just begun mass producing a 22-inch transparent LCD. We are proud to be the world’s first company to introduce this technology into the marketplace. It does not require a backlight, using ambient light from the surroundings.  It operates at such low power that a small solar cell can power the entire display. As our long involvement with the technology suggests, Samsung believes that transparent LCDs will ultimately become one the cornerstones of real-time communication and information.

Transparent LCDs have the potential to change the way we interact with our surroundings – from turning store-front displays, showcase events into compelling multi-dimensional touch screens, to eventually learning about breaking news, your personal schedule and even your friend’s latest Facebook update on the windows in your home. Something out of a sci-fi movie? Yes, but we’re closer than you think.
