B) the ces 2013 lcd see through - just show, nothing that is mass-produced, but they do exist ?
C) OLED tv - just on paper, no way close to actual buy one.
E) is there any area where transparent lcd screen are in actual use?
I try to read me up in the oled thread, but I got lost, way to techical.
Just for fun, on Sept 11th 2026, when I m 70, - any chance for a 80" oleds at usd 650 and a 10" edge to edge Oled display Ipad?
Well I disagree with a lot of what you say, but I'd say that your comment "D" is right on target.
Sorry, couldn't help it. Gotta roll with the punches around here.
A) I think I saw your comment regarding CSI Miami and plexiglass before in the OLED thread, and I'm not sure I understand.
B) No, nothing truly mass produced yet. But there have been dreams of car windshields that block out the sun with black dots over where they would otherwise pass through the glass (based upon your head position). And imagine seeing all the effects of headlights coming at you, except not the headlights themselves. Further, I would love windows I could dynamically control the blocking effects of. I personally hate physical shades/blinds/etc., and curtains are for girls.
C) No, not just on paper: OLED has been demonstrated, and is "supposed" to be shipping currently, and is claimed to be so from LG, but no one has seen a single report of anyone actually having received one yet.
D) Sure, why not?
E) Not that I've heard of, but keep in mind what LCD screen technology truly is. Back up quite a ways: Every calculator made for decades using using this in principal. The light comes from behind, and the digits are made of LCD crystals that block the light to black. Further, guess what TV's themselves are doing? Hugely complicated to be sure, but at their most fundamental principal, and in layman terms: LCD's are designed to block light and let whatever is behind them to come through at varying amounts.
