[CES 2013] If you happen to be at CES this year, you would do well to check out the show floor and scout for different “niche” devices, as well as those that did not gain attention in terms of a press conference. One of them would be Hisense, who has a transparent 3D display on show. To put it simply, you are able to place just about anything behind the display, where it will show off a 3D image in the foreground. The transparent 3D display demo unit was a 40-inch screen coming in a landscape format, and this raw attempt will require you to wear a pair of 3D glasses in order view the 3D effect as intended.

Chances are, Hisense would market this transparent 3D display that is high on the novelty factor to the advertising industry, but will consumers bite at the end of the day? That remains to be seen, but stranger things have happened in the past, such as a full touchscreen smartphone – who would have thought that we would actually ditch the physical QWERTY keyboard eventually?
