If you haven't yet seen, Samsung have demonstrated at CES 2010 a semi-transparent OLED screen fitted to a test-model laptop. It simply looks awesome!

While it might seem (haven't seen it working from the back of the screen yet) pretty crap for a laptop screen with regards to privacy, the scope for practical applications in other industries is huge!

Wow, that's pretty neat. Personally, I would use that technology in a helmet or something, to make a concept of a HUD be real.

I can't get over how thin that is though, being able to see right through it? Wow. But how much does the OLED drive up the cost by?

Also, I think this is better suited for the Tech forum.

That would be so annoying, being able to see stuff behind what you're typing on. It's like reading from a transparency sheet vs. a regular sheet of paper. =p

I guess HUDs didn't catch on well in cars, but this could be a good thing for GPS systems.

I really have no idea how this could be applied to anything useful. A transparent computer screen would just be annoying as hell. I guess maybe a helmet?

Helmets.

I'd love to be able to read how fast I'm going or what my tach says without looking down at the instrument cluster.

Or, for that matter, for a full blown Halo-esque helmet.

Um....what good is a see-thru screen?

Just curious. As a HUD, as previously mentioned, yes, but I'll be damned if im playing Modern Warfare 2 on a see-thru screen.

It would be pretty useful for HUDs in cars, maybe even glasses? But not as a laptop screen. Imagine how hard it would be to see stuff outside. And that also means no more pr0n...
