The researchers at Samsung Electronics have made a recent discovery in LED technology that could essentially turn windows into TV display panels. The scientists at the Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology and Seoul National University have managed to create a “single crystalline Gallium Nitride on amorphous glass substrates.” This newly founded technology will produce LED TVs that are 400 times larger using glass material and also at a lower cost.

This new discovery is far from being perfect as scientists are still trying fix large current leakages and problems with voltage shifts. It’s been estimated that having glass-like TVs will still take around 10 years to be ready for commercial use.
