No, it's not exactly Android related but it's too freaking cool not to post it! Soon, we shall be living in the world of Minority Report, and this "Smart Window" technology Samsung has at CES 2012 is going to help us get there. Ashley Esqueda checks out what's happening over at the Samsung booth and gives a little demo of the window.

CES 2012 - Samsung's Smart Window is pretty amazing

How long before this available on an automobile window? ...and then how long after that can we play GTA in an augmented reality mode?

This is incredibly funny when you read it... but when you imagine it, it becomes the funniest thing in the entire world.

Actually its a one-way mirror. Only thing people will see is themselves. So you'll still be safe whackin in front of it. lol.

That is freaking crazy. I swear I thought that those were stickers until she pressed them. No idea where I would put/use this, but that changes nothing in the fact that I still want/NEED this.

Super cool concept. But I'm guessing most people would have to make a new hole in their wall for this to work? Because I doubt many people already have windows the size of that display...

And Apple will claim they've had the patent pending on this in 3...2...1...

Joking aside, this tech was featured in a video from Corning Ware some time ago- so who really does hold the patent on this?

Is Samsung trying to sell window replacements vs. the ability to install a film with this tech on an existing window?

The key thing with this will be software/ecosystem. If it runs android, imagine a phone to window app or an NFC chip that allows me to sync my to-do list with my smart window or send a recipe to it. I wanna be about to share my photos from my phone on the smart window or skype on it.

Technology such as this makes me want to shoot my Android and any of today's technology with an AR15. Retarded.

Shut, I cannot have one of those. The kids in my area all always playing baseball and the other day they broke one of my house windows.

Forget the window. They need to incorporate this overlay onto mirrors. Imagine your dresser mirror or bathroom mirror / medicine cabinet with this on it.... Keep up to date with the latest doom and gloom in the news .. grab the weather and traffic updates.... check scores..... take a video call...

Real cool stuff coming ahead of us... exciting!

I like how she's a "Mobile Nations Video Delegate". Translation: She's purty enough to show on camera. Most of the rest of the slobs, not so much.
