Graphics, User Interfaces Samsung has developed a completely transparent solar-powered monitor that's designed to be used with ambient light. Though they're marketing it as a television, it's almost certainly going to be used initially as displays in commercial areas, and it apparently is also a touch-screen, opening it up for the coolest kind of kiosk you've ever used. See a video after the jump.

What's special is that they've developed a backlighting system that can properly illuminate a transparent display. If you just took the back off a regular LCD and reinforced the glass, you wouldn't get results like this.
