Imagine the marketing possibilities of a sticker that you could slap onto a store window, displaying moving images; animated ads that could be stuck onto any window surface.
Scientists have created a transparent screen using nanoparticles, together with blue light and liquid polymers to accomplish this amazing feat.
Lead researcher Chia Wei Hsu, a graduate student from MIT and Harvard University, said “We literally just pour the nanoparticles into the polymer before it solidifies. Since it’s so simple to deploy, you could paste this sheet onto any surface. You could put it on store front windows for advertisements or information about what’s inside the store, or we could use it for office windows, so you could then have your presentation shown on the window of your office.”
