We have seen a lot of tablet concepts and ideas, though this one takes things to a new high. This is a tablet device that has the capability to scan, has a transparent screen with augmented reality capabilities, and then has many more added features which make the utility of this device seemingly endless. The Iris transparent tablet concept which can be considered a truly multitasking device in the truest sense.
The tablet concept has been the outcome of the efforts put in by a group of designers namely Liu Wei, Yao Kai Chi, Hong Ruei Hong, and Cheng Ya Fang. It can be mentioned here that Apple has also filed a patent for similar technology, complete with a transparent screen for augmented reality, though what we have in the Iris Tablet is a product in flesh and blood, which is always better than mere patent drawings.
The concept of a handy scanning device is not a first of its kind with the Iris Tablet. The LSM-100 prototype mouse from LG also had this capability to scan a document. The Iris tablet concept therefore can be expected to be a further development over it while also packing in several innovative features such as a navigation tool, along with the ability to translate the text over which it is held. Two of its apps worth mentioning include one that can be used for planning interior designing using AR, while the other allows the user to split the screen to enable shared usage. To top it all off, it can charge wirelessly.
