The clip shows a completely transparent screen, which actually functions as the laptop's display panel. It's a cool idea, and one we have seen before, but don't you think it is ultimately pointless? If the concept ever saw the light of day, the technology would be distracting and counter-productive in a home setting. Talking of daylight, that would prove quite a problem, shining right through and blinding your dumb ass while you were trying to read a PDF or something similar. Mind you, if you're a soldier in war situation, it probably helps to see what's going on behind your screen. Apparently, there's a use for anything. [Youtube]

If anyone's actually taken apart an LCD, they are basically transparent when you remove the backlight panel. Look at home-made LCD projector mods.
But yes, this video should not have made Gizmodo.
