Transparent Gadgets; Do you admire these technologies?
Transparent gadgets: Technology is amazing, in years back, I stopped the philosophy of “this is impossible” and joined the league of “all is possible, let’s look for how to make it work.”
I didn’t just concluded to follow that thread, but technology wonders made me. We are in the 21st century, a world that opens us to the wonders of technology.
This time around, technology is revealing gadgets in a new form. Apart from the comfort ability it had tried to include and improve on, some new styles had recently been creeping up which will leave your mouth open Ahaaaa! We revolved from a world where 1GB hard disk weighed over 1 ton to an era where 1TB memory could sit on your palm without a feeling.
After dealing with the size, we move to the world of transparency. Most of the science fiction movie I watch features the future gadgets in transparent, even cars, if the remember the James’ Bond “Die another day.” In this article, we bring you five of the technological transparency concept.
This is the first transparent gadget I will be reviewing. From big and bulky CRTs, we went into slim Plasmas, LEDs and LCDs. Now the transparency is possible, and we eagerly await it. Michele Friebe in 2011 designed it, the transparent television and it became a big splash for that year. The project concept was said to have started from the high end TV maker in Europe, Loewe. The company according to news is in talk with Apple Inc to make the first HDTV with super clear LCD technology to give your home a cool TV feeling.
Did you watched Iron Man 2, a sample is the phone used by Tony Stark. Transparency in mobile phone was first used in the LG GD900. The mobile phone came with a transparent keypad (slide out). This time we are talking about a complete transparent gadget, the Taiwanese has proved themselves in this area; Polytron has created a complete prototype of the transparent mobile phone. The phone is said to have no software, but the hardware is said to have been ready.
In most science fiction movies, the computer gains most of the favor of the transparent gadget technologies. One of the best innovations expected to hit the market soon is the transparent keyboard. If you see a computer with an actual keyboard, just suspect a transparent gadget may be sitting before it. The keyboard is planned to use a laser beam to produce a keyboard interface on a horizontal surface. The aim is to move screen without the hassle of carrying a keyboard, and an email or a document can be made anywhere a flat surface is found.
The normal home iron seems to have a perfect shape with no wrinkle, making a transparent gadget iron should just be perfect. With the B-Iron 715 by Dong-Seok Lee and Ji-Hyung Jung, you can see clearly the surface of your fabric under heat. The idea is a great one, but it’s still a concept at the moment.
These sets of speakers system were first presented by the British speaker maker in 2009, Ferguson Hills. The sound production of these speakers was just as clean as you could think looking like a figure in the public aquarium. They were kept out of common man’s reach with the price.
