Yes, your window is your smart display

Imagine your window became a smart display. It is becoming a reality and this is the sort of technology that makes me so glad to be alive now, just from a tech perspective.

Of course, this isn’t the first time we have seen a demo like this. This Corning Glass video shows something a little more developed but the Samsung technology is actually going into production.

    We’re living in an incredible time. Technologies that seemed like science fiction just a few years ago are being released, and they look incredible. Take the Microsoft Surface Hub 2 as an example:

    Then, when you’ve watched that, take a trip back about six or seven years when these sorts of displays were fantastic dreams:

    Yes, your window is your smart display

    Even Google’s Jamboard already seems quaint, just two years after it was announced:

    Jamboard and Surface Studio are hints of our future tech

    We haven’t quite realised the dream of the sorts of ubiquitous screens and panels that we see in the Corning and Microsoft future vision videos, but given what we see now in Microsoft’s Surface Hub 2, we can’t be that far from these interfaces either.
