    Nice CGI renders.

    The real thing is not so great... as shown by this video:



    Curious that while this Xiaomi most likely uses this LG panel... LG themselves are not selling one?

    "Futuristic" ? YES.
    Practical. Definitely NO.

    Unless someone invents a way to actually turn the screen opaque on command...

    mostly a showroom product to impress customers with how high-tech your company is, I'm sure creative people will manage to make it look good like Caesar's link with double screens
    or as a see-through display giving enhanced reality stuff for machines in another room (fixed on a real glass window behind it)

    the day this becomes touchscreen we will really be in the future :eek:

    That's really cool. It's interesting to me how it even has working blacks. So, this must be a combination of LCD and OLED technology. Makes me wonder how exactly video signals are sent and interpreted on it. I figure there must have to be 2 separate video signals: one for grayscale and the other for color+luminosity.

    Stack many layers of these together and you could create a 3D hologram, though each consecutive layer would have to be a little bit brighter than the last.

    The Chinese in general are going to eventually edge out the Koreans and Japanese in TV tech imo. TCL is about to release mini-LED 120hz 4kTVs at supposedly affordable prices. Mini-LED is just a bigger, more economical version of micro-LED panels. Will be looking at both TCL and Xiaomi as potential future upgrades.

    Great for displaying products on shopping malls, horrible to watch TV on.

    Once upon a time we had to worry for glare and reflections from 3rd party sources of light, bulbs, electronic devices, window, etc. Now we will reach a new breakthrough, we must also worry for anything behind the TV. How to make your life troublesome, yes you! Have money and time to waste. :rolleyes:

    They are already out.

    Here is the cheap one:
    https://www.bestbuy.com/site/tcl-55...-4k-uhd-smart-roku-tv/6424672.p?skuId=6424672

    The series 8 are also out with 25,000 mini led back-light that is controlled with 1000 zones. I'm personally waiting for Samsung to move to mini-led which I assume they will before they transition to there OLED like panels. Samsung have the best anti-glare which I need.

    I don't think the point of this is to play games or watch tv. It's for ad display in a store, display over a car or house window, ...

    Not everything revolve around games. There's definitely practical uses of transparent displays absolutely no doubt about it.

    I can see this useful for a smartphone combined with augmented reality things. Or augmented reality glass with these kind of panel.
    But as a home TV, yeah definitly useless.

    I expect these things to pop up in every shopping mall, pavilions, airports, fast-food restaurants, and red-light districts. That is, until someone comes up with practical 3D hologram technology.

    dope, but all I want is an affordable 60hz 1440p OLED screen. Don't care about the looks or TV aspect. Don't even care about HDR or 10bit.

    the one that been used in commercial, the glass is using instant-light-control-glass things to simulate backpanel, like this :



    wonder if this TV also have such things

    but i think its not really weird for them(xiaomi), as if you look at their products line up
    they been making many which some might say "prototype/test-trial" products
    such https://xiaomi-mi.com/news-and-acti...-mounted-fan-purely-air-purifying-respirator/
    etc.

    I remember that for a future tech show my company did years ago (I think it was 2008 or 2009), where they were mocking up technology for ten years in the future, they made a room with displays embedded in the windows (In think the use case was hotel rooms). They created these display windows by taking regular LCD TV's, stripping off the cases and the back-lights and then mounting the LCD panels in a frame to make them look like a window. The panels where illuminated with these big construction lights placed in the "outside". The display windows were then used to show all kinds of information and video on them, so that hotel guests could stay up to date.

    So with these displays, technology has finally caught up with the imagination of our design department. It's just a pity that we as a company are no longer in that sort of business.

    Anyone observed the reflections of surrounding environment on the panel?? (well...i'm not talking about ray tracing;))
