It turned out to be the coolest thing I’ve seen in technology in the last few years. At the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show, Panasonic was showing off its futuristic Transparent TV.

While the model on the show floor was a prototype, the Panasonic rep told me this TV could become reality in about 2-5 years!

The screen is almost perfectly see-through when turned off, and it’s easy to see art or knick-knacks behind the screen. Once it fires up though (with some cool sound effects) the screen goes completely opaque and a gorgeous high-def looking video picture emerges. I was standing pretty close to the prototype, and I couldn’t tell that it had any transparency when it was playing videos. It truly looks like a regular HD TV.

The screen can slide up and out of the way completely when it’s not in use.

While it’s still technically future technology, it looks like it could become real soon, and I can’t wait!
