Your television (TV) is probably the centrepiece of your living room. Quite often, if you’re like most of us, you have designed your entire living room entertainment system around your TV. Some of these TVs are attractive and some are hideous. So, what’s the solution?

Well, Panasonic has come up with a new experimental TV screen that fades into transparency when not in use. They displayed this at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2016 in Las Vegas, in January 2016. The screen is a thin LCD panel with adjustable dimensions. However, while this is still in an experimental stage, once it is released to market, it may fundamentally change the way we watch television.

While this display may initially look like an ultra-thin TV, it is only gradually that you realise that it is a transparent screen. When the images disappear you can see through the TV behind it. This display can show videos or still images in HD quality and appears completely opaque. When turned off, however, the screen looks completely transparent.

This screen can also become translucent or make various sections opaque or transparent. So, for example, you can use the top half of the screen as a music player, while the bottom half remains invisible. The latter shows off the contents of the shelf behind the screen.

Inside this display are micro LEDs that beam out the picture to the glass panel. You can use this screen not only in your living room, but also in your business premises. The current model of the transparent display has a resolution of 1080p, but Panasonic hopes to improve the transparency in future prototypes.

This may take some time to enter the commercial market, but it is a technology that is not just futuristic, but also viable. Also, this display is designed to blend in with your smart home and all the other gadgets in it, including those in your living room.

You can use this display for multiple purposes. If you want to watch TV you can do so. If you want to watch family photos you can do this as well. You can also do Internet streaming through it and activate your music on it.

This display works with motion sensor activation or voice technology activation. You can also adjust the height of this display, so if you want to watch your TV high up, you can do so, as also way below.

So, now you know more about this futuristic technology and can look forward to it hitting our mainstream stores soon. Here’s to futuristic TV viewing!
