Forget foldable TVs. Transparent screens are the cool new tech trend

Yeah, I bought one of these for a project a year or so ago. They were hard to come by because they had gone out of production after being produced for a few years prior. I’m guessing from the size, 55″, these are the exact same ones. Every manufacturer was just repackaging the same screen. The one I used (Planar) was surprisingly good. Very sharp picture and decent brightness. Brightness is the big problem though. There’s an upper limit to how these things can be lit. And similarly, they can’t be fully transparent and will always look pretty tinted even when off. They’re also expensive as hell. So, aside from doing a splashy retail display or the like, there’s no reason you’d want one of these in your home.
