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

Regardless of whether you’re a Republican or a Democrat, spend some time with the Green party the next time you plan an event. Events can suck lots of resources, from energy to water and typically generate a whole lotta trash. For your next event, try keeping the trash to one bag and see how fun it is to try! Finger foods, real linens and decorations made from found or reusable objects will help you on your mission to keep your party green and sexy.
