    I don't think regular TV programmes would look right on that unless the entire screen became opaque in use and then there'd be no point in it being transparent.

    It may have use for displays though. If you had two and put one screen behind the other, with suitable material you could try some sort of 3D, but then parallax would be an issue.

    Looks like something for an uber modernist minimalist house to me

    Actually, whilst I tend to shun 'new trendy innovations', I can see a point to this in my situation.

    My Hi-Fi and TV, 55" are in front of a large 60s low level silled window. and I have always considered loss of light as well as view restriction. If I increased my TV size to facilitate usage as a computer and remote streamer 'window', reading from 10 or so feet, I would lose much less vision of outside and also light coming in.

    Alternatively, you could move your current tv away from the window.

    Well that was my thought, it’s something only ever seen in SF movies before. I can see the point that it will be much less imposing when switched off than current tellies, which do rather dominate today’s living rooms.

    Of course, but the setup is almost ideal as it is in every other respect.
