Minority Report Window Computer Samsung
With the introduction of its revolutionary Smart Window, Samsung has fulfilled the ultimate techy fantasy, shy of the Star Treck transporter of course. The concept of having the user act as an input device for a computer system became popular after the release of Minority Report (2002). Previous breakthroughs such as the Multi Touch Table came close to the mark, but the new Samsung Smart Window has fulfilled this science fiction fantasy to a tee.
Much like a tablet the Samsung Smart Window allows the user to interact with the device using multi touch technology. The shutter feature on the window makes it easy to stop passers by from seeing in, and the ingenious one-way view design ensures that your screen looks like a normal window from outside, no matter what is displayed inside.
Mass production: 2012
Implications - Imagine the impact on the hotel industry. Ultimately this could replace every in-room travel guide, menu, and strategically placed pamphlet. Advertisers can target specific demographics and hotels can increase their revenues by selling advertising on the new windows.
