Samsung’s Smart Window

Nowadays, the future is at our doorstep. Electronics giant Samsung has created a new product called “Transparent Smart Window” and was unveiled at the CES 2012 show in Las Vegas. The most remarkable thing is that it will go in production in only a few weeks.

The Transparent Smart window is a plain-looking window that also works as a computer and even as a TV. You can pop up weather info, twitter, emails, search the web, watch TV programs, etc. Looking at TV will never be the same, for example when you are in the kitchen you will be able to watch recipes from popular cooking programs to help you prepare your dinner.

Because it’s a window it lets in natural sunlight, but when you want to block the light out it can even be used as an electronic blind. At night the screen can be lighted for optimal use. The screen is very eco friendly and even uses a bit of solar power. The screen operates as a one-way mirror so no one will be able to see what you’re doing.

In the future windows like these will be used in cars to display the speed, the petrol gage and so much more. You will be able to swipe away-unneeded information and place it where you would like it. The window will normally be available at the end of the year.
