After OLED screen and curved screen TVs, what could you possibly imagine would be the next step for TV manufacturers? Well, can you imagine a TV that looks like a glass door and can be fitted on your furniture's glass panels? Japanese electronics maker Panasonic indeed has developed such a prototype which generates bright, clear images as normal TVs.
A report from Engadget states, "The OLED screen is made from a fine mesh, embedded into the glass sliding door." The report further added, "Because the display is on a railing, you can move it up and down the shelf for even greater customisability."
Even if the back lighting is kept on,the TV image is visible. Once the light is dimmed, the image is bright enough to be almost indistinguishable from existing TV sets.
The screen can be set to two modes, "transparent mode" where you can see the shelving behind it, and "screen mode", where the screen turns opaque and you can see just the screen.
According to Panasonic, the prototype generates bright and clear images like normal televisions television and is likely to hit the market in the next three years.
