iPad Air?

I use a transparant plastic clipboard daily. Every time I pick it up I wonder how long it will be until the iPad looks and feels this way. While my musings stay firmly in my head, designer Ricardo Afonso has been busy putting his similar ideas into 'reality'.

Behold! The transparant iPad concept. We love it and think it's almost a given that tablet computers will look very similar to this concept design in the near future.

It certainly looks pretty, but I wonder what the point would be? A dynamic and realistic springboard "wallpaper"? Using it as a HUD while driving?

I think it would be too distracting, not to mention light coming in from the back might make it harder to see things on the screen. Or maybe the sunlight could actually replace the backlight which would automatically adjust itself accordingly?

Transparent electronics have been speculated and rumored for such a long time now, and there are a lot of people that actually believe it will happen soon. The funny thing is that, I don't think I'd even want a transparent device. My iPad is hard enough to find as it is!
