Lenovo Reveals Transparent ThinkBook Laptop Concept At MWC

The Mobile World Congress is usually a good venue for interesting and revolutionary products. Most of the firms acting in the mobile segment use the annual fair to reveal interesting concepts of products. In any case, these concepts serve to showcase products that reflect the company’s work in specific areas. Using this premise, Lenovo decided to bring its new ThinkBook Laptop concept. It features a transparent display.

Lenovo Reveals Concept of a New Laptop With Transparent Display

Lenovo officially introduced its ThinkBook Transparent Display Laptop Concept. That mouthful name stands for the industry’s first laptop with a 17.3-inch Micro-LED transparent display for a borderless and see-through display experience. The laptop also features a transparent keyboard area, and a seemingly floating footpad design. Since it makes use of the micro-LED technology, it offers high color saturation, exceptional contrast and 1000 nits brightness of the screen. These elements combined allow for optimal visibility for both indoors and outdoors, making it equally suitable for most of the settings.

Lenovo’s Quote About its New Product:

“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.”

The technology offers a wide array of possibilities in terms of image quality optimizations. It can also get some improvements in the future in terms of durability and transmittance. We assume the final product would allow the user to further tweak the level of transmittance. After all, having a transparent display can become distracting after a certain time. If the user can tweak the transparency it would be nice.

The bottom of the Lenovo ThinkBook Transparent Laptop Concept is covered in a large capacitive touch surface. The area serves as both a keyboard and a large stylus-compatible drawing surface. Of course, the flat surface can’t compete with real, tactile keyboards. Writing on it could turn into a tricky experience at first.

Motorola and Lenovo also took the opportunity to show a smartphone with an adaptive display concept. It can be bent and shaped into different forms depending on users’ needs and was built upon the display and mechanical innovations from Lenovo foldable and rollable concepts.

Could This Product be more than a concept?

Unfortunately, Lenovo did not reveal its plans for the ThinkBook Transparent Display Laptop Concept release. Considering this is a concept, we might be a few years from seeing it become a real product that will be produced in a large scale. Honestly, multiple questions arise when we look at a product like this one. For example, imagine how tricky could be to use it under direct sunlight. Again, it would need to allow the user to reduce transparency for some use scenarios.

At the moment, there is no word if this product will ever cut the real world. Lenovo is known for showing weird innovative tech just because it can. Anyway, it’s interesting to see that curious and somewhat weird ideas aren’t being discarded at the company’s office.

We are probably a few years away from seeing this product becoming real. However, we expect to hear more about Lenovo and its transparent display products shortly.
