Lenovo showcases ThinkBook Transparent Laptop Concept

After teasers, Lenovo has officially introduced the ThinkBook Transparent Display Laptop Concept – which features the industry’s first laptop with a 17.3-inch Micro-LED transparent display for a borderless and see-through display experience.

This also has a transparent keyboard area, and a seemingly floating footpad design. Since this uses Micro-LED technology, it offers high color saturation, exceptional contrast and 1000 nit brightness of the screen allow for optimal visibility both indoors and outdoors, making it equally suitable for nearly any setting.

The technology also offers more possibilities in the future with further optimization of image quality, durability and adjustable transmittance to provide more privacy or more transparency to interact with real world objects, said Lenovo.

Continuing the momentum of Tech World 2023, Lenovo and Motorola also showed a smartphone adaptative display concept that can be bent and shaped into different forms depending on users’ needs and was built upon the display and mechanical innovations from Lenovo foldable devices and rollable concepts.

Lenovo did not reveal if it is planning to bring the ThinkBook Transparent Display Laptop Concept into production in the future.

Regarding the concept, Lenovo said:

Through the power of Artificial Intelligence Generated Content (AIGC), the transparent screen opens up new avenues of work collaboration and efficiency by enabling the interaction with physical objects and overlaying digital information to create unique user generated content.

The transparency allows it to effortlessly integrate naturally within its environment. Users can seamlessly switch between the keyboard and drawing board with a supported pen, unlocking new levels of creative efficiency. AI in combination with transparent displays will open up new ways of engaging with data and applications, offering opportunities to develop new features and form factors.
