Samsung Smart Transparent Window is definitely something we had seen in Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible 4 and other movies. Say what? Remember Tom Cruise and his female coworker/agent had to chase the bad guys in his cool electric car? I think it was an electric Audi, but I might be wrong. His female coworker/agent had to pull up an interactive map or something like that through the car’s front windshield, and the front windshield was transparent enough which allowed her to peek through the front windshield and yet keep the interactive content visible on the front windshield. Well, Samsung Smart Transparent Window has the same concept, except that it allows users to check weather and other contents on real window (i.e., a window inside a house).
Samsung Smart Transparent Window can also allow users to use a virtual blind to close the window. In regarding to virtual blind, I think it’s cool, but I’m just worrying that some really bizarre, embarrassing situations might occur if Samsung Smart Transparent Window crashes, disengages the virtual blind and allowing strangers to peek inside whatever compartment which it supposes to shut out.
Anyhow, I like the idea of this technology! Perhaps someday in the future when Samsung Smart Transparent Window is popular and cheap enough, I might install it inside my house. Check out the video right after the break to see Samsung Smart Transparent Window in action at CES 2012.
