This week’s idea for the next big thing might get you using a window to check the weather again.
Instead of looking out the window, you’ll be looking at it. Unveiled at last week’s CES, Samsung’s smart window puts the kinds of widgets you’d typically see on your computer screen onto a piece of glass. Want to block out light or get some privacy? You can close the virtual blinds.
The only downfall we can see is the same issue on all touch-screen devices — they fill up with funky fingerprints fast. But we want to know what you think. Are smart windows the Next Big Thing? Vote in the poll and tell us what you think.
