    We often come across transparent computer and mobile screens in sci-fi films. But what if we tell you that's it is going to come to life? Israeli engineer Jacob Eichbaum in association with TAGA has developed a ground-breaking transparent tablet called Grippity. Yes! You read it right, Grippity is the world's first semi-transparent tablet which lets you type from the front and back of the screen simultaneously. Although tech gurus predicted creation of transparent tablets 10 years from now, Gripptiy recently launched a funding campaign on kickstarter and promises a consumer launch later this year.

    Grippity has a solid plastic carcass which packs in a 7-inch semi-transparent LCD display screen with 1024X600 display resolution. Though this resolution is low when compared to the reigning tablets in the market, but then again this much liberty is granted as the dual transparent touch concept is very new. One thing that makes this semi-transparent tablet unique is that you can type with all 10 fingers with your thumbs on front of the screen (as you hold it) and rest of the 8 fingers can be used to type from the rear. As major typing is facilitated from the back of the screen, it will restrain the users from obscuring the display's pixels with their fingers and will also prevent damage to the front screen.




    The futuristic machine is powered by a quad-core cortex A8 processor and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The device has 8GB of internal storage capacity which can be amplified up to 32 GB through the SD card slot. Further, it possesses a 2,400 mAh Li-ion battery, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities.
    There is still no confirmed news about the price of this tablet, but as the project is still in the process of raising funds you can reserve a tablet by pledging $235 on kickstarter and can expect delivery by October 24, 2014. Around 397 of the 500 limited edition slates have already been sold.
