Samsung's Transparent Display Finally As Big As HG Wells'
Samsung Display and Intel have created a 55-inch transparent display. The world's largest, it makes use of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology. It's finally as big as the one shown (or imagined) in the 1936 film Things to Come.

Samsung said the 55-inch transparent display is integrated with Intel’s Real Sense technology to strengthen visually compelling interactive features for customers.
“The Intel technology takes human-computer interaction to the next level of visualization, which combines consumer-grade 3D cameras with an easy-to-use, automated library of stored perceptions to simplify the camera enhancement efforts of software developers,” spokesman Kim Ho-jeong said.
The products will be exhibited from June 9 to 11 at the Retail Asia Expo at the Hong Kong Convention Center, Asia’s biggest expo for retailers.
The Samsung transparent display has a 75 percent reflectance level, which is similar to normal glasses. It can deliver at least 50 percent higher reflectance than competitive LCDs now in limited availability and a much improved color gamut.
It also has an exceptionally high contrast ratio and a much faster response time than LCD panels.
Science fiction fans know that this is one of the marks of a futuristic society. As you see in the screen capture below from Wells' prophetic 1936 film Things to Come, the technologically advanced society of the future makes use of widescreen transparent flat panel technology (see more pictures).
