Transparent screens just aren’t very practical these days, bigger models are frequently expensive and bulky, while smaller heads-up displays tend to have very narrow viewing angles. However, MIT may have solved all those problems at once with its prototype nanoparticle display.
A transparent screen might seem to be a far fetched idea even in this technologically advanced age, as the ones that are in the market these days seem to lose out on their practicality. Bigger models tend to be expensive and bulky, while smaller heads-up displays have extremely narrow viewing angles. MIT researchers might have the solution to this issue with their prototype nanoparticle display. The device itself will create color images on a glass surface through the act of ‘tuning’ a silver nanoparticle coating all the way until it lets only certain light wavelengths pass through.
