Panasonic showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2016 its transparent TV, which is a new LCD technology that becomes invisible when not in use.

Tom's Guide wrote that Panasonic's new experimental screen fades into total transparency when it is turned off. If it gets a full release, it could easily be the biggest advancement in the history of TV. It is a screen with thin LCD panel and adjustable dimensions.

The device has the capacity to show HD quality videos and still images. The screen can also turn translucent. Users have the option to turn the screen opaque or transparent. For example, the upper half of the screen can be used as a music player, while the lower half is transparent.

Engadget reported that the user can use a remote control. What's more interesting is, it also uses motion capture or voice command for control. The display, however, tend to be dark, which still needs under-shelf lighting to work.

According to The Verge, there still are certain limitations to Panasonic's prototype transparent TV. The images max out at 1080p resolution, and it is still not that transparent. Panasonic is still working to advance the level of its transparency. However, its transparency level is already quite amazing, according to most reviews.

However, for the moment, Panasonic is not yet committed to bringing this new technology to the market, as the company still puts it at an experimental level. There are no official reports on how much this device costs.

One representative during the CES 2016 showcase of the technology said, the company plans to make it available for customers in five years, the latest.

The adjustable, transparent LCD Panasonic screen definitely revolutionizes how people will watch TV, from listening to the morning news, to simply relaxing while on an entertaining movie. Besides Panasonic, LG also has an advanced 18-inch display that can be rolled up like a paper.
