Samsung launching a transparent display to market, 90% more efficient than a regular LCD
The company is starting commercial production of a 22" transparent display, with both black&white and color versions, which have 20% and 15% transparency, respectively. An added bonus is the massively increased efficiency - these screens consume just 10% the power of their LCD counterparts.
If you are wondering about the resolution, it is WSXGA+ (1680x1050 pixels), the display has 500:1 contrast ratio, and offers both HDMI and USB ports for hooking it up. We are curious if Samsung can implement those for smaller gadgets like phones and tablets at some point, like what Sony Ericsson did with the Xperia Pureness X5, as we can think of various ways this could be beneficial. While we are wondering, have a look at a cool demo of the technology, involving a goldfish, and some water.
