Imagine owning a transparent refrigerator--you"d never have to open its door again when you"re looking for a snack.

some of these things are cool, but i think others kind of take away your personalness, like the transparent concrete and refridgerator, and potentially the dryer. it`s like saying "here, look at all of my private stuff, all in the open! and a bathtub? what if someone walks in on you that you don`t want to?

I just thought of a SWAT team hiding behind a concrete wall, and being seen, and then shot, by the bank robbers who weren`t close enough to it to be seen.

Deepeyes is right. Why is there no see-thru loo?

The bath and chair were probaly made by perverts with hot wives/girlfriends/cousins. Ya know, for lookin` and stuff.

The concrete kinda looked like polystyrene, and I can`t see the point of it, as in concrete usually tends to be floor. So is it for seeing subway/London Underground tunnels or something? Or a hiding robber`s silhouette through a wall I suppose.

But I want a transparent toaster dammit!

My first thought on seeing the household appliances was "Those are gonna be a b!tch to keep clean."

Either you spend an hour every other day scrubbing them inside and out or they won`t be transparent for long.

The present invention relates to a mirror device, the reflectivity of which may be varied by means of applying a voltage. According to an aspect of the invention, there is provided a mirror device, the reflectivity of which may be varied by means of applying a voltage, comprising a cholesteric filter which is arranged to be gradually switchable between a reflective and a transparent state by varying said voltage, and a display device arranged to be at least partly covered by the cholesteric filter, wherein said display device is visible when the cholesteric filter is set in the transparent state and hidden when the cholesteric filter is set in the reflective state.

How the transparent mirror works :D

The mirrow does reflect, they are not that retarded. Maybe it has a range of what it reflects and anything outside that range it doesn`t show... or maybe its light senstive so if you turn on a light behind it it blacks up and reviles the mirrow.

As for the transparent fridge, I always remember in the movie Beetlejuice, the mom had a kitchen with a chiller cabinet, like what you get in stores with drinks in it, she just slid it open to get stuff, and could see inside it. THAT seems a better idea than an actual see-through fridge, which would just look messy.

"Hey guys, I have a great idea! Let`s take a mirror, turn it invisible, and sell it as new technology!" ...*slaps face*

Transparency is cool, but it loses the point when it removes literally the singular function of an item.

the fridge idea looks cheap. The dryer is kinda cool. The iron looks interesting, the chess game I don`t understand. The toaster would be awesome. but Nidonemo, if you want to see the toasting process you can usually see through a toaster oven where you can watch it toast. and the bathtub would be really weird, but kinda cool. Oh, and I want that canoe then I want to be left in the middle of the sea.

I like the fridge idea, and the toaster! I kinda always wondered what the toasting process looked like. Also the canoe looks like a lot of fun too!

But the transparent bathtub? Really? Say that out loud, "transparent bathtub".

The transparent fridge is such a bad idea. Can you imagine how often you have to clean out/wipe down that thing? Usually the inside of peoples` refrigerators are an embarrassment. Who wants to see your icky-sticky jar of jelly and wilting lettuce?

Ugh, I don`t like the ones with too much tech when they`re see-through, like the iPod, game consoles, etc. The toaster, iron, canoe, fridge and dryer were cool.
The mirror was most interesting. How does that work out?

How the f*ck is transparent chair an innovative design? xD

Some of them were dumb (OMG transparent dice! Who would`ve ever thought!?) and some are only concepts (transparent toaster would be awesome), but I`m still waiting on the transparent kitten.

I think the transparent toaster was the best idea, because the fridge you would still have to open up to see what was in the back or middle, probably.

That`s really cool, except forthe fridge and dice.

I have like 101010101010110101010 pairs of transparent dice.
And the fridge would take alot of energy because of the you know.......transparency.

But I really want to bricks and chairs.
