The current pace of technology advancements portray that the time is not far away, when you’ll soon own world’s first transparent smartphone. Polytron, the Taiwan based manufacturer of smartphones has published a futuristic looking, gorgeous transparent smartphone prototype.
The product was in its developmental stages from many years and the company is now able to produce the working prototype of transparent smartphone in year 2013. The product is made from Polytron’s Polyvision Privacy Glass. The glass is impervious when the cell phone is powered off, but its appearance transforms when electricity is applied. According to Polytron’s website, “the liquid crystal molecules line up, the incident light passes through, and Polyvision looks clear.”
The glass is not totally transparent because the battery and SIM card remain visible even when the cell phone powered up. The otherwise translucent concept design, with its dual-sided, multi-touch display, currently runs no operating system — it’s just hardware. Sam Yu, Polytron’s general manager, told Macworld, however, that “All handset makers are looking to work with us. The technology is mature.” Mashable
