Samsung unveils a glimpse of the very near future at CES 2012. The Smart Window is self-explanatory and mind-blowing, and these babies will be out on the streets before the year is out – literal oversized transparent one-way mirrored touchscreen technology is making its way into our homes. The Smart window provides views of both the physical and virtual world, a view which can be manipulated using its blinds app. More than a cool factor, these digital blinds control the amount of actual light that comes in through your Smart Window, eliminating the need for backlight units during the day. This means it consumes only about 10% of the electricity that a standard LCD display its size would. Albeit wanting on the portability scale, this latest surprise from Samsung looks fixed to win… it is after all a simple premise – why buy a hulky desktop when you can surf on your window?
