The difference is that all those things were said before people knew any better...

And you claim to know better now?

Yes, because transparent screens AREN'T new, and the research on their utility for standard computer display has been done already, or did you miss that part?

Fields like Augmented reality are in their infancy, things like HUDs on windshields could become much more common, and literally thousands of other devices we haven't even thought of yet could use this technology.

Oh, you mean all the things that I covered in the "obvious niche uses" disclaimer?

No one is talking about "regular computer use" because that may be .

The article was. I am. And yes.

The difference is that all those things were said before people knew any better, and they're mostly myths anyway. Are you familiar with snopes? Might want to check it out...

Transparent screens aren't all that new, and they've already been tested. We KNOW that they are *worse* than standard screens for like 90% of uses (e.g. the computer screen you're looking at now)

They are harder to see, harder to use, reduce readability and increase reading time. These are known facts.

Beyond the pretty obvious niche uses, transparent screens will NEVER replace standard screens for regular computer use.
