Transparent displays coming to cars… soon

Transparent displays coming to cars… soon

Neoview Kolon display

There’s no doubt that car dashboards will soon be swept up in new technology but next in line is the humble rear-view mirror. Korean company NeoView Kolon has been busy developing a transparent transistor for a special OLED display, and now it has found a way to integrate that technology into a car’s rear-view mirror. As seen in the sketchy photo the mirror would display what looks like speed as well as two other numerical indicators, what gear you’re in, and a host of auxiliary information.

If this new tech is really desingned for rear-view mirrors it’s hard to understand how it can be used safely and effectively. It seems unlikely that a driver could quickly note the information tell what’s going on behind the car and not steer into a lamp post. But if nothing else, the technology is exciting.
