Samsung presented world’s first and largest transparent OLED laptop at CES 2010. Samsung is showing off a notebook prototype with a 14 inch transparent OLED display. When the screen is off, it’s up to 40% transparent. And when it’s on, you can clearly see the display, but you can also see right through it.

The next big wave to rush down the display tech pipeline are laptops and handheld gadgets with transparent OLED screens. That laptop may not be ready for market, but Samsung also announced the IceTouch media player with a transparent OLED touchscreen that users can control by tapping on the back of the screen, letting users continue to watch videos on the 2-inch color screen.

As you can see from these photos, the panels themselves are transparent. That’s possible because every pixel is an individual source of light, meaning there’s no need for backlighting. Instead of sitting in an opaque frame, they allow 30% of the light to pass, meaning you can see straight through them.

Why would anybody want a transparent screen? We have no idea but some Engadget readers have offered a few possibilities:

  • More distractions in your viewing monitor!
  • It’s for hit-men, so they can surf the net, watch the target and see danger coming.
  • The transparent glass would be more useful embedded in car windshields, where they could be used to pop up relevant information for drivers on the fly
  • On a point-of-sale register, so that a cashier and customer could see each other.

The OLED display really isn’t all that useful for notebooks, but it’s still pretty impressive looking. Where it could really come in handy is “head-up” displays for vehicles. Samsung says the tech could also be used for MP3 players, eye-catching advertisements and displays, and notebooks like this prototype.

Samsung said the IceTouch will hold 16GB of music or movies. It will come only in white, though users can customize the color via skins sold separately. No price was announced.

This is the only info available at the moment, though you may go through the video for a closer look after the jump.
