HP Is Granted a US Patent For See-Though Screen Technology [bbc.com]
Hewlett Packard has been granted a US patent for its see-through screen technology.
The firm describes a system to create transparent displays that would allow users to see both the screen's computer graphics and the backdrop of the room or an object behind the device.
Possible uses include navigation data shown on vehicle windscreens and adverts shown on windows.
Samsung is also known to be working on similar technology.
