Samsung is bringing us the future with its new Smart Window that it presented at CES 2012 in Las Vegas.
The Smart Window, that brings scenes of the futuristic Minority Report to mind, is an update to the common house window that may also look like a regular screen but offers some unique, useful and fun features. The Smart Window adds a 22 inch LCD flat screen that has a resolution of 1680 x 1050 and has a 500:1 contrast ratio. The new technology developed by Samsung, has made the traditional LCD screen up to 20 percent more transparent than older technology.
With the new technology, you can look out your window at the scenery outside while simultaneously checking the latest weather forecasts or socialising with Twitter and Facebook. The window is also a one-sided pane so passers-by can’t see what you’re looking at.
Consumers are likely to have Samsung’s Smart Window available for home installation by the end of 2012.
Other announcements made and technologies presented at CES 2012 include: the iNuke Boom, Dell’s consumer tablet, Nokia’s Lumia 900 and Facebook for Mercedes-Benz.
