Samsung’s ‘Smart Window’ is exceptionally cool

Samsung Transparent Smart Window

Samsung never ceases to amaze me.

At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, the South Korean company is showing off a new touchscreen display technology that is completely transparent.

Dubbed the Samsung Transparent Smart Window, the see-through LCD will fit any window up to 46 inches at a resolution of 1366 x 768. This thing can be used for watching TV shows and such, but it can also be used like a computer. The panel is one-way, so people who are outside will not be able to know just what you are viewing.

Did I mention that there’s a ‘blinds’ feature that lets the user simulate the opening and closing of the blinds by sliding up and down the touchscreen display?

No word yet on its pricing or availability, but according to reports coming out of the expo, it is headed for mass production soon. Check out a video of the Smart Window in action after the jump.
