Alright, so CES 2012 has come and gone but there was one thing I never got a chance to show you guys. Besides the boat load of Android rockin’ handsets and tablets I did manage to get my grubby little hands on one more “device” and that came in the form of Samsung’s Smart Window.
Easily the coolest tech I got to play with at CES this year, Samsung’s Smart Window could be considered the future. Well, that — or completely useless, depending on how you look at it. And even though it wasn’t directly Android related, it doesn’t take a stretch of the imagination to see how a simple swap of the OS could bring Android out of the world of boring old opaque screens and into the wonderful new frontier of transparent displays.
Check out my hands-on video below. Oh, and don’t mind the “no touch” sign below the display. Apparently it was more of a loose suggestion…
So, what did you guys think? Do transparent displays fall into the same gimmicky category as 3D displays? Or could a transparent Android tablet/smartphone prove itself truly useful in the distant future? You know — while skating around on your hoverboard.
