    Now put a regular TV in the back of this one, and what will happen if you watch it from the back and then put a mirror in the front of the screen?

    10:30 Now you just have a regular screen, dude. You're trying to justify this shit as hardly anyone will ever have a use it. Even for luxury jewelry you have too much light loss behind that thing and an ugly frame in front of your very expensive stuff. I would never put this in my jewelry store.

    you mount it on a wall and when it's off you just see the wall. You have to get rid of that frame though or at least 3/4 of that frame.

    I could see them making a display with several of these panels in layers as a mean of giving the picture depth. This could also be perfect for amusement parks and haunted houses to replace the old "pepper's ghost" effect.

    It'd be cool if they added a second oled layer behind and using some clever software trickery and a webcam you could basically get a 3D parralax effect. Better 3D television maybe?

    A room with walls, floor and ceiling each made out of multiple layers of these TVs for each surface could be used as the ultimate virtual reality simulation display requiring no invasive gear, like VR goggles, that dulls your vision.

    millions of dollars and time invested in making the TVs bigger, thinner and sharper so that later they become transparent and generate the same effect of using a smartphone in daylight?

    If the screen could spin quickly without damaging it, it could make a holographic display. Being transparent could reduce the amount the display blocks views of what is behind it even though an opaque screen could be used for a similar effect. Having a super high refresh rate would be really important, though. Even at 360Hz, 10 full rotations per second would leave you with 10 degrees per refreshed image so the 3D model would look pretty rough and 10 full rotations per second would be noticeably choppy. If the refresh rate could go up, that could be a very good high resolution hologram. A stack of a few stationary screens could be used for a holographic display too but the amount of opacity would limit that to just 3 or 4 layers.

    Amazing implement would be a number of screens behind each other, where distant objects are displayed on the farthest screen and closer objects on the closer displays. That would make 3d interaction way more immersive and realistic, having real depth..

    This would he perfect for assembling a camera system behind the oled panel in a phone these days. All the pixels have to do around the camera area when its in use is shut off and the black back could open up as well to reveal the camera, then you could get a clear image wit h a full screen phone with no notch and no bezel at all

    They really should have put electric glass tint as a back layer, that way they could have gone without the drak grey background and you wouldn't have to worry about turning off the lights to get a better view.
