See-through 3D TV from HiSense

HiSense (China) presented a proof-of-concept transparent 3D TV at CES 2013 in Las Vegas, NV, USA. As demonstrated by the WIRED reporter here under, the thin stereoscopic 3D LCD panel lets viewers see through its Full HD image as in the CSI TV series labs.

HiSense is "testing the water" with this prototype intended to corporate buyers. The key difference between this 3D TV and a normal TV is that the backlight is disconnected from the LCD panel itself. Normally the backlight and LCD are fixed together, but to make this transparent set HiSense mounted the backlight on a wall and the screen several inches away from it in front. Watch the video here under.

The prototype may become a real life product in the coming months, but this is not officially confirmed.
