About This Theme

The communication device in science fiction is frequently a clear panel, a hologram or a combination of both; such as the terminals in The Expanse.  Movies such as Minority Report have walls that are clear displays and the characters move objects around the screen with hand gestures and in Altered Carbon and Paycheck the computer screens are transparent. Clearly, displays in the future will be transparent.

This idea of transparent panels has influenced my web site since the early 2000s when CSS3 introduced transparency. This new site uses advances in HTML5 and CSS3 to take this design concept further such as the glass panel menus positioned along the edges which slide towards the center to reveal their content. These menus have the bonus of allowing the site to look the same on displays of all sizes.
