(CNN) — How would you like to have a cell phone you can see through? The Taiwan division of a U-S company called Polytron Technologies, unveiled this prototype of a transparent cell phone. They spent six years researching and developing it.
The phone is made of conductive glass and is scratch and shatter resistant. The battery is just about the only thing that cannot be made transparent, so the company is working on minimizing its size.
The phone is slightly bigger than the iPhone 5.
It can be touch-activated only on one side, but can display images on both front and back.
The company plans to introduce the transparent phone to the market by the end of the year.
They are keeping the price under wraps, but say it will definitely be cheaper than the iPhone 5.
