Tech Company Promises Transparent Cell Phones By The End Of The Year
World

Your brand new smartphone will be obsolete by the end of the year, as Taiwan-based Polytron Technologies is promising a transparent mobile device by the end of 2013.

The company has already begun marketing the transparent device, which boasts what they call Switchable Glass technology.
The Switchable Glass utilizes liquid crystal molecules to display images, molecules that form a milky composition when the device is off.

When on, the molecules separate and form pictures and text.


It will happen near the end of 2013. Trust me,” said Polytron general manager Sam Yu.

Certain parts aren’t transparent, such as the SD card and SIM card. In addition, the microphone, camera, and batteries will also be visible, but will be hidden behind a dark glass cover.

Intriguingly the phone will have two multi-touch screens, one on each side.

The demand for this sort of device has not been determined yet, and Polytron is the not the first company to experiment with a transparent device, as Samsung and LG have been working on them for years.
