Transparent Tower + Monitor

Recommended Posts

I know something that would work for sure:

Black text LCD over no background at all.

To display white stuff, you need a trasnmissive display (as usual) and a backlight. Or maybe just a reflective display would work. But in any case, there is either a backlight or a mirror behind the polarization layers.

To display black stuff, you need just the polarization layer to impede light from the backlight / mirror to emit / reflect light. So yeah it is possible to have a transparent display, but it would have all white stuff be shown as full transparency.

A friend, who is studying for electronics engineer, disassembled an LCD digital clock and shown this to me. The clock still worked, showing huge black numbers as usual, and you could see behind the display (however visibility was greatly reduced, because of the absence of a backlight).
