transparent-display-wiredWired gadget guy Daniel Dumas shot this video of a Samsung transparent display installed on a laptop on the show floor at the Consumer Electronics Show taking place in Las Vegas this week. Transparent display prototypes have been around for a few years, and Samsung isn’t actively marketing its model as a product yet. But this clip is the best demo we’ve seen yet.

Watching Dumas walk behind the laptop’s 40-percent transparent OLED screen is much better than reading about it. How long before we see a smartphone you can look through for the ultimate augmented-reality display?
