It's always exciting when you see technology in futuristic/sci-fi movies come to life. The most recent example of this would be Samsung's aptly-named LCD Smart Window, shown off at CES 2012.
Imagine looking through an office window, only to tap it and update your twitter account about what the weather is like today (which you'd be able to see for yourself through that very same window!). Or, picture yourself browsing a store and using this touch-screen to check for products and prices. Alternatively, you could also be the navigator of a spaceship in outer space, or a secret agent looking through files! No matter what the scenario, this touchscreen-television just looks cool.
Fret not, secret agents, as this see-through wonder is one-sided; people on the other side can't peek at what you're up to. You'll need ambient light to see the screen, but there is also a special transparent BLU (back light unit) for when lighting is inaccessible.
Unfortunately there are no solid release dates or prices yet for this Window Panel, but rumors state that productinon could start soon.
