The idea of a transparent device isn’t new, since LG has been doing it for many years, when they had a handset with a transparent keypad. Now there’s a transparent tablet in the mix, called Grippity, but it’s not made by a big company. Instead it’s a project on Kickstarter

The project has a goal of $199,000 and it has achieved $24k of that, with 27 days left to go. The device looks like a media center remote and stands out through the ability of typing more comfortably than on regular slates. It removes carpal tunnel syndrome and repetitive stress injury, thanks to a neutral palm posture.

It’s also a boon for people with fat fingers, plus it makes playing Angry Birds more fun apparently. There’s the concept of overlapping multitouch panels with a transparent display in between that really stands out from the project. The specs of this device include a semitransparent 7 inch LCD screen with a 800 x 480 pixel resolution, Android 4.2, an ARM Cortex A8 CPU, infrared transmitter and SD card slot.

The device also has 4 GB of storage and a Li-Ion 2400 mAh battery, promising 3 hours of constant use.
