With a pretty girl in tow, at the recent CeBIT electronics show in Germany, Samsung unveiled its very cool 46" solar powered and transparent LCD television. The prototype is powered by solar panels that feed off the ambient light in the room.
Based on Samsung’s existing transparent LCD technology, the prototype comes fully equipped with the shiny features of HD (1921x1080) and a 10 finger touch screen surface.
Plans to commercialise the TV are apparently underway, and its uses could be extended beyond the living room, with application possibilities in storefront windows and fridge freezers.
Last year at the SID conference in Seattle, Samsung showed off this very cool, completely transparent OLED TV.
