A story on engadget that caught our eye today covered Second Story’s “Sightlines” project. Those of you who have seen our Stratacache unit in the Lab have seen some of the potential of transparent LCD technology. In effect, you have a video screen where the color white is keyed out as clear, so you can see through it.
In this project, a Kinect camera is used to determine where someone is standing and then displays graphics on the screen that hover in front of what’s inside the case so that it lines up properly. Check out the video for the project, where they use their test setup to sell the benefits of an oversized clothespin.
