It’s amazing to think how we’ve had windows on our houses for hundreds of years now but there hasn’t really been any notable technological advancement on them. Samsung wants to change that, in a big way.
At CES they unveiled their Smart Window which transforms a window into a massive touch screen. The window is transparent, like most other windows but you can interact with it and use widgets and apps. Think how great it would be to wake up in the morning, head over to your window and check out the latest weather, breaking news and what not. No one from outside will be able to see the information on the windows, you can only view the screen from inside – however it will be a bit weird when people from outside see you swiping, tapping and staring at the window.
