TCL's clear displays for windows and fridges

In addition to its TV range, TCL had some other, very clever displays on show at the Consumer Electronics Show 2013.
While it was hard to walk away from theand the , TCL’s booth at CES 2013 had a number of great reasons to explore beyond the world of OLED and Ultra HD.
TCL had two different clear displays — the Smart Window and a fridge that had a colour touchscreen as well.
The smart window was rather neat, with a quick refresh and surprisingly crisp images. The fridge, however, was really intriguing — the clear display formed the door, but also provided temperature and energy-usage stats, while the colour touchscreen could let you re-order food for delivery, directly from the fridge itself.
These aren’t exactly on their way to consumers any time too soon, and in the fridges case, we’d imaging that it might see light in luxury hotels, or similar, beforehand. Either way, it’s certainly something that has piqued our interest.
