Transparent OLED display technology is, without a doubt, here to stay.
Over the last several months, we have seen new OLED TV's that are fully transparent but, as the discussions around them emerged, we are not entirely convinced that they will make for a good TV. They lack contrast without having a back, and you will have to really think about where you position the TV to make sure there is no backlighting in any shape or form to get the best viewing experience. All this seems to create more problems than it solves.
So what is the point of a transparent TV besides saying it's cool because it's see-through?
Well, there isn't. But what if we find another use for transparent OLED displays? Such as in sliding doors and subway doors? The marketing potential for this is endless and the manufacturers know this all too well.
Transparent OLED manufacturers are taking this technology very seriously in that respect and are investing a lot in development, although it's uncertain whether or not they will bring out TV's and mobile phones with the same concept.
