Concrete Computer Display

The Concrete Computer Display looks fun, but not exactly practical. I can imagine all sorts of advertising possibilities for this type product. Have a look below for bricks made with the same process.

“In co-operation with Christoffer Dupont, student of engineering; Lene Langballe, student of architecture and Dalton Beton (a Danish manufacturer of concrete components), the Innovation Lab project team has developed the first screen of transparent concrete that the world has ever seen. A revolutionising screen type – a novel concept which will come to influence building industry, architecture, design and a vast array of business areas. The first firms of architects were already queuing up long before the manufacturing process had been completed. Innovation Lab therefore has great expectations to this creation and anticipates a massive influx of attention, national as international, cementing the significance of the see-through concrete screen…

The screen consists of concrete with embedded optical fibres, arranged as pixels, capable of transmitting natural as well as artificial light. The light-admission points are on the back of the screen where the fibres are positioned. The light, or the picture, will then be displayed in pixels on the front. The light source can be a projector emitting either pictures or film footage. In principle, the screen is capable of acting as a window since – owing to the combination of the screen concept’s light-absorption and optical cables – it has a capacity for transmitting natural light.”
