    Why a transparent screen of such a low resolution, unless there is some type of layering functionality?
    As a media centre or games controller, it is difficult to believe this concept would be easier or quicker than existing controllers i.e. Playstation or X box in combination with their already highly refined on-screen menus.
    This design might only be a better way to interact with a tablet, which I’m not a fan of generally. Give me an ultrabook anyday.


    Wow this is unbelievable……….
