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.

So the real question is how brightly the scene behind the panel was illuminated.


Yeah, more impressive would be if the sun was shining behind it. Still, could be useful for windows on the inside of buildings (offices and whatnot).

Shame they seem to imply it could be used for external windows by having the cityscape maquette behind it.
