Showcases 6-inch and 65-inch transparent AMOLEDs

Display maker AU Optronics has demonstrated two extremes in transparent AMOLED screen technology at the recent Yokohana Exhibition in Japan. The company showed off a large 65-inch transparent touchscreen display fitted over a vending machine to theoretically be used for buying from the machine's glass, leaving more room to show the products themselves. AUO also demonstrated a six-inch transparent AMOLED display.

The smaller display carried just a 400x300 resolution but a transparency of 36 percent and, as a traditionally fast AMOLED, a response time of less than 0.01ms. It offered a genuinely usable brightness of 400cd/m2.

The placement of the of the larger 65-inch display over a vending machine was primarily a proof of concept. It just as easily could find interactive applications in car windows and windshields, or store display windows.

AUO gave no indication as to if and when either these transparent displays would see commercialization, although its advancements often lead to products in the long term. [via KISPLAY]
