Whoa! Samsung's smart window brings "Minority Report" to life


(CBS) - Imagine looking out your window and being able to check the news and weather at the same time. Sounds like something out of "Minority Report," right?

Samsung showed off their "Transparent Smart Window" at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this week. The screen features widgets, like Twitter, a calendar or a clock. It also has virtual blinds that you can open or close with the tip of your fingers.

This is incredible. Creepy, crawly robots? Not so much. 

Smart windows are expected to reach consumers sometime in 2012.
