Xiaomi unveils ludicrous transparent OLED TV – and it’s actually going on sale
We’ll get straight to it: Mi TV Lux Transparent Edition is the world’s first mass-production transparent TV. With an edge-to-edge transparent self-luminous display, it transmits images that, according to its makers, “seem to be suspended in the air”.
Love or loathe that idea, the TV does usher in a new way to consume content at home – one many viewers have seen only in science fiction films until now.
When the Mi TV Lux Transparent Edition is turned off, it looks just like a glass display. And, unlike traditional TVs that house their processors and connections in a back panel, the Mi TV Lux Transparent Edition cleverly houses all of these in its circular base stand.
Aside from the futuristic design, Mi TV Lux Transparent Edition boasts some flagship-level hardware too. The 55-in transparent OLED panel features a claimed 150000:1 static contrast ratio and an infinite dynamic contrast ratio. Its 10-bit panel apparently displays 1.07 billion colours – far beyond what the human eye can actually perceive.
The TV comes with a 120Hz refresh rate and 120Hz MEMC technology too, for clearer motion and low latency gaming
