Comments Off on Samsung Introduces Completely Solar-Powered, Transparent TV

At the CeBIT electronics show in Germany, Samsung unveiled their latest television prototype and it’s the coolest one yet.  The 46-inch, 1920 x 1080 resolution LCD TV is fully solar-powered and transparent! The prototype was designed to use only a tiny amount of energy and it gets all it needs from solar panels running off ambient light in the room — no need for back-up power sources.  The screen is also transparent, so while you’re seeing images on the screen, you’re also seeing whatever is behind it.  This means that it could be used in storefronts, as digital window blinds or even in car windshields. In addtion to your favorite TV shows, it can also project photos or any other data and features ten-finger touchscreen technology. via ITProPortal and Inhabitat
