London: With an aim to open up new perspectives in window projections, scientists have developed a transparent plastic screen that can turn any window into a display for moving images.

According to researchers, the screens are made by adding tiny nano-particles that reflect blue light into a liquid polymer and can be stuck on to any window.

The nano-particles are invisible to humans, creating the transparency, while images projected in blue light show up.
The researchers from by Chia Wei Hsu, a graduate student from MIT and Harvard University, US, could be used to host advertisements on shop windows or for office presentations.

The screen, developed by researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard departments of Physics, and the US Army Edgewood Chemical Biological Centre, could be used to host advertisements on shop windows or for office presentations.

"We literally just pour the nano-particles into the polymer before it solidifies," said lead researcher Chia Wei Hsu, a graduate student from MIT and Harvard University, US.
The study was published in the journal Nature Communications.
