Taiwainese LED glass manufacturer Polytron Technology is developing a transparent smartphone. The see-through device is only in its initial prototype phase, but it promises to be interesting at the very least.
The prototype shows the hardware potential of a transparent phone with clear, laminated sheets, batteries, speakers, and a micro SD card. The design is even more sleek and modern than Apple products and reminds me of the clear backpack phase in my high school years – except those backpacks were mandatory for security.
Polytron’s clear phone will use Polivision glass:
When the power is off, the liquid crystal molecules are randomly oriented [way] that scatters incident light and the screen becomes opaque. When electricity is applied, the liquid crystal molecules line up, the incident light passes through, and the screen looks clear.
