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!

A World of Interactive Screens

IBM has an amazing installation using 3 executions- a digital wall, a film in 40 screens and multiple touch screen stations. The installation shows interesting information, statistics, photos and videos on how technology can make the world a better place. Talk about a huge interactive exhibit!

Do you think this kind of exhibit as something fun, informative, overwhelming or any other reaction? Let me know how you feel after watching the video in the comment section below.

Microsoft Surface

Have I mention that I’m an apple fan? I used to have a MacBook before. I currently own an iPad 2. But I guess, I’m starting to like Microsoft again because of the videos I’ve been seeing lately.

Though the videos below were released 2 years ago, I would still like to share with you the Microsoft Surface. Essentially, Microsoft Surface is a touch screen device in a table form, instead of a typical kiosk. What makes it so amazing is that not only does it have multitouch capabilities, but it can also sense fingers and any physical object placed on top of it. Watch the video below to see what I mean.

According to Wikipedia, one unit costs around $15,000. Would you be willing to get one? If yes, what kind of applications would you like it to have?

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?
