The Smart Window, currently in prototype phase, casts a touch-controlled interface onto transparent glass with ambient light. Samsung was demonstrating a whole range of applications, from Twitter to Microsoft Office, all touch-controlled and viewable directly on the glass. Images are viewable in daylight, and there’s a nighttime mode that uses side-lighting and flipped colors.

You can even draw some virtual blinds to control the flow of light.It’s difficult to see how Samsung might turn this into a commercial product, but i'd be excited to have my own Smart Window.
