Samsung Transparent LCD Screen Shown at SID 2010

OLED Screens have proven not to be the best type of screens to try and make transparent due to backlighting issues, but Samsung may have beat this with some cleverly hidden backlighting at the SID International Symposium.

The company emphasized the transparency of their 46″ LCD Display panel by placing wine bottles behind it. Visitors were encouraged to touch the display to show information about that particular bottle of wine.

The display uses the ambient light, and if it’s too dark the display will automatically switch its light source over to use LEDs located around the border of the LCD.

This cool technology could be used for store displays and advertising in the near future; though no date has been announced for when these screens will be made commercial.
