An organic light-emitting diode (OLED) is basically a light-emitting diode (LED) in which the emissive electroluminescent layer is a film of organic compound that emits light in response to an electric current. Panasonic has managed to embed an OLED display, developed from fine mesh, directly into the glass sliding doors of an entertainment center. When not in use, the display becomes transparent, and whatever is located behind it can be viewed normally again. Continue reading for more cool pictures from around the web.
Panasonic unveiled a transparent TV set during CES 2016 last week in Las Vegas. At the wave of a hand, it goes completely translucent, and revealing whatever is located behind it. It can also slide up and down the sides of the bookcase on rails, making re-positioning easy. Widgets can still be used while in transparent mode, so checking the weather, changing music tracks, etc., is all possible. Particle effects, like snow and rain, were added for when the set is not in use. Continue reading for more fascinating images from around the web.
