Sounds something like invisible clock ..yeah it is with slight difference but similar/almost same as transparent glass shield.

Transparent electronics is a emerging technology, which is satisfying the requirements of everything invisible or multi-purpose objects.

Before going further let me give an example:


You are travelling in a car and you want to watch a movie or video play. Now the glass shields ie window panels will turn into a tv screen and this is possible with this technology. This is helpful when the driver can't take away his eyes from road but still want to watch out a map of route. Then front window panel acts display with the help of this tech.

What is Transparent Electronics?



Its just Technology for next generation of optoelectronic devices and employs wide band-gap semiconductors for the realization of invisible circuits. Oxide semiconductors are very interesting materials because they combine simultaneously high/low conductivity with high visual transparency.

How it works?


Transparent oxide semiconductor based transistors have recently been proposed using as active channel intrinsic zinc oxide (ZnO). The main advantage of using ZnO deals with the fact that it is possible to growth at/near room temperature high quality polycrystalline ZnO, which is a particular advantage for electronic drivers, where the response speed is of major importance. Besides that, since ZnO is a wide band gap material (3.4 eV), it is transparent in the visible region of the spectra and therefore, also less light sensitive.

Applications:


They have been widely used in a variety of applications like:
1.antistatic coatings
2.touch display panels
3.solar cells,
4.flat panel displays
5.heaters
6.defrosters
7.optical coatings etc

Well Let us hope that we are soon going to see transparent technology being implemented in our lives.
