Road SMS turns Samsung Galaxy S transparent

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on July 15th, 2010

Check out this application if you own the new Samsung Galaxy S. The Road SMS is available exclusively through the Samsung Apps download store on the Galaxy S and will create an optical illusion of the handset being transparent by overlaying a QWERTY keyboard on top of a live view from the phone’s camera.

It allows you to text while walking, so you can pay attention and not walk into things, fall down an open manhole, get hit by a car or step in dog poop while texting.

The company has now achieved a 30 percent transparency on its designs, and so they have some big ideas on how they want to use the technology.

Samsung sees it used in storefront advertising, just like in the sci-fi movies, HUDs for helmets and even car windshields.

Transparent Lexus makes you feel naked behind the wheelHere’s something that I guarantee you haven’t seen on the road. A transparent Lexus. It’s pretty amazing to behold.

Kenwood SP0001 transparent speakersLooking for a pair of speakers to impress your friends with? These Kenwood SP0001 transparent speakers should do the trick. Maybe. I’m not sure. They’re cool, but something about them is very washer/dryer like. If you like transparent washers/dryers then this is gold.

They must look better than they sound however, with a disappointing 10Wx2ch, with 8Ω power, yet costing €765. It comes with a matching pair of stands with white and blue LEDs.

The entire phone is transparent until you turn it on. That’s when the screen and keypad light up so you can press the buttons accordingly. It’s sure to get lost easier and blend into its surroundings. Where the battery is, I have no idea. Hopefully, its stronger than glass.

LG GD900 transparent phoneThe LG GD900 has just been unveiled, and the transparent keypad phone is a real looker. It’s definitely a first. The phone is just 13mm thick and features a slide out keypad that’s see through, knocking the iPhone dead as far as cool looks. It may be crystal clear, but the LG GD900 keypad will still glow if you are in the dark.

There aren’t many details about what’s going on inside other than HSDPA, but it’s due out Q2 this year. We do know that there’s a second camera on the front for video calls, and we’re guessing it’s also a music phone, with a proper headphone jack and may have Dolby Mobile inside.

See-through iron let’s you watch the de-wrinkling processDoing chores sucks. Ironing is probably one of the worst chores. But no one likes a wrinkly shirt. This iron should make it a little more bearable. The b-Iron 715 is a clothes iron that’s completely transparent, letting you to see your clothes while you’re ironing. This way you can watch the whole mysterious de-wrinkling right before your eyes. And you won’t burn that shirt.

Let’s just hope that it lives up to all the hype that surrounds transparent iron technology and distributes the heat evenly. Also, if it clouds up from the steam then you will be sadly disappointed. Here’s to hoping they have all the wrinkles worked out.
