Is This Transparent iPad in Your Future?


Transparent iPad

Here’s a design concept for a transparent iPad by artist Ricardo Afonso that might seem far-fetched, but transparent screens are certainly not impossible. Just look at the exquisite thinness and beauty of this iPad concept. It’s downright mysterious-looking.

What’s the mystery? Well, where are the working parts of this wispy tablet? Apparently, they must be in either those top or bottom sections, which are opaque and seemingly large enough to accommodate iPad innards that are much smaller than those of today’s tablets.

However, given the pace of miniaturization of the iPad, placing all its electronics inside those two tiny spaces is not completely impossible. One thing’s certain: Battery technology will have to improve to fit inside those miniature confines.

Afonso created a digital 3D model of what he calls a “futuristic tablet concept based on the Apple iPad,” and is selling his files on digital media supply company Turbo Squid’s website.

We think this is an absolutely lovely design. It’s not altogether impossible, either. If some of the technology inherent in transparent displays we’ve seen at the past few techno-trade shows are brought into fruition, this design might be possible by about the same time the iPad 6 rolls out.

What do you think? Tell us in the comments.
