Samsung Transparent Smart Window

There’s a lot of reasons to be excited with this CES 2012 Innovation Winner.

1. In a nutshell, it’s a Window + 46″ TV + Touch Screen Computer. This elevates a whole new experience inside one’s house. It provides modern conveniences that enable home owners to access useful applications at home (Recipe, Twitter, TV shows, Music, Pictures) and for work (Presentation, Flight Information, World Stock).
2. Privacy is well-kept with it’s one-sided viewer.
3. It’s a space saver since it practically can serve as a real window with adjustable blinds and night illuminations.
4. Being partly solar-powered makes it somehow eco-friendly.
5. Although, my main worry is its durability from breakage, pun intended. I do hope Samsung would be able to figure this one out. If not, I’m sure the architect will find a perfect solution.

Personally, I would love to have one of these since I live in a high rise condominium which eliminates the risk of being accidentally destroyed by kids playing outside, and it’s a great space saver.
Would you like to have one too? Why or why not? Let me know in the comments section below!

Mirror of the Future

New York Times R&D Lab developed an intelligent mirror that does more than letting a user see his reflection. Using voice command and motion detection, it allows user to check the weather, news articles, health statistics and more. Aside from browsing news articles in the mirror, user can transfer these articles to a smart phone using RFID so he can read it while on the go. The mirror can also detect objects being placed on the bottom shelf and provide additional information of the object.

This is indeed a cool way to deliver information as part of one’s daily routine.

No word yet as to whether they’ll mass produce this mirror since this is an on-going project.
But if ever they’ll sell one, will you get one? Why or why not?

Future Interfaces

Here’s another amazing video by Microsoft on their vision of the future. I have goosebumps after watching this! It appears that almost any interface can be interactive even the car window and the kitchen door.

Would you think Microsoft will lead the future tech-world?
