Many of us may not know this, but the Loewe group has been intrinsically involved in the developmental phase of television throughout this exalted product's history. In fact, this German electronics conglomerate had worked extensively with television pioneer John Logie Beard, and had also engineered the world's first electronic TV set back in 1931. And now, the company is about to embark on an endeavor involving a state-of-the-art system, fueled by progressive technologies. They have mapped out an ambitious project of contriving the world's very first large screen TV set, which is completely transparent in its bearing.
The conceptual design put forth by Michael Friebe (shortlisted in the 2011 iF Concept Design competition) entails a big screen Loewe television using a TOLED screen. Aptly dubbed as the Loewe Invisio, the conception combines the current advanced state of LCD screens with the latest TOLED display technology.
However, it should be duly noted that the contemporary ambit of TOLED is not developed enough to be utilized in such large screen mechanisms. But, the novelty of the product wouldn't just be limited to the ethereal see-through form. The wondrous scope will also allude to enhanced workability with non-transparent/solid moving pictures ingrained with rich color reproduction. The spectrum of contrast will also supposedly range from solid black to pristine white for the first time in TV history.
Finally, from the commercial perspective, things are not as farfetched as they may seem. Loewe has a good record of converting their conceptual designs to credible products. And, taking that into account, we as aficionados can surely hope for a big screen, transparent TV set in a few years; if not now.
