    Cool, opens up possibilities for those futuristic looking transparent-monitor PCs.

    Except, without the weird blue tint and all that.

    Holy sh*t. That is so cool, even though I can't seem to know what people would do with it except use it for ads in marketplaces.

    This would be a window I'd buy.

    SAMSUNG TAKE MY MONEY.

    I don't think the intention is for things like that.

    This is a product obviously designed to integrate technology more closely with your daily life. Changing information like the weather and time available without having to go to a phone or computer or tablet or whatever. It's in your kitchen? Recipe right on the window while you're cooking. So cool. This is the direction I've wanted to see technology move in for a long time. Forget tablets -- let's get this stuff into a house in a way that takes up no space. Love it.

    Then the little kids playing in the house threw a baseball right through the "window".

    Expensive and fragile piece of technology on the outside of your house? What could possibly go wrong?

    :lol:

    I think Nathan voiced that concern pretty well. :P

    I still think it's cool -- the logistical details can always be worked out later -- like maybe it would work better on a fridge, or cupboard, or built right into the counter top..as long as there are still people out there challenging what computers are and how they can improve our quality of life, I'm listening. :D

    I want to know how this fares under weather conditions such as snow, heavy rain strong winds etc...Or is it supposed to be on top of another window?

    Another downside - the entire neighbourhood will know when you're fapping. And what you fap to.

    That's really cool, but I can't find a use for it in my everyday life. Virtual cookbooks? Nah, I could just use a tablet for that.

    Then... just put something behind the window that covers the entire thing! Problem solved! :D

    EDIT: Apparently people can't see what you're doing from the other side.
