At first glance, it looks like a glass pane in a sliding door, but with a push of a button or wave of a hand a television screen instantly appears.
Panasonic has been improving its transparent television since unveiling it at the Consumer Electronics Show, with the goal of making it completely invisible.
The firm swapped out the LED screen for an OLED and now when in transparent mode, the set is completely undetectable – allowing users to clearly see through it.
An OLED screen uses self-lighting pixels, while an LED uses a backlight to illuminate its pixels.
The Japanese electronic maker’s innovation was first seen at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this past January in Las Vegas Nevada.
Not only has Panasonic created an invisible set, the firm also improved the image to where it is ‘almost indistinguishable from existing televisions’, reports Matthew Smith with Engadget.
