Samsung Transparent LCD 

The transparent LCD screen has been portrayed in futuristic type movies.  The idea is clever and can have some neat uses but hasn't been a reality, until now.  Samsung has come out with a transparent LCD screen that will allow you to see what is on the other side of the screen.

The uses are only limited by your imagination, you could use it as a window pane, display cases, fish tanks, mirrors, etc, We may have to wait a bit before this becomes more mainstream as Samsung is currently only using the clear LCD for showrooms as display cases.

Normal TV screens require back- or side-lighting to display an image, but Samsung’s transparent screen uses ambient light like sunlight or room lighting. That makes the product relatively cheap, since a large chunk of the cost of a TV or computer screen is in the illumination technology.

Down the road, Samsung predicts that your bathroom mirror, a department store window, or even your windows at home could double as an interactive screen
