At Mobile World Congress 2024, PC giant Lenovo took the wraps off a laptop with a transparent display that it said would lead to new ways of working.

The proof-of-concept ThinkBook laptop has a 17.3-inch Micro-LED transparent display that is borderless. It boasts a glass keyboard that doubles as a drawing pad; Lenovo also provides a digital pen for it.

Lenovo said the transparent display lets the user see objects or environments in the real world and overlap digital content on top, which would lead to new use cases for the personal computer.

For example, an artist can see an object behind the laptop pop up on the display and then add digital drawings and other flourishes for a mixed reality use case.

The laptop is not meant to hit the market but to showcase the technologies Lenovo is capable of developing.

But if it were to be sold, Lenovo would give the laptop the ability to turn the display opaque, said Tom Butler, executive director of commercial notebook portfolio at Lenovo, in an interview with AI Business.

Lenovo and Motorola also re-introduced a foldable smartphone users can bend to wear on their wrist or elsewhere.

It was built using Lenovo’s display and mechanical innovations for its foldable devices and rollable concepts.

Lenovo also unveiled a line of AI PCs: The ThinkPad T14 i Gen 5, ThinkPad T14s Gen 5, ThinkPad T16 Gen 3, ThinkPad X12 Detachable Gen 2 and ThinkBook 14 2-in-1 Gen 4.
