EVANSTON, Ill., Dec. 22 (UPI) -- Futuristic "invisible" electronics may appear sooner rather than later, thanks to U.S. researchers developing transparent, high-performance transistors.

The transistors can be assembled inexpensively on glass and plastic, creating high quality displays on car windshields, goggles or billboards, the Northwestern University researchers said.

Developing new types of displays powered by electronics without visible wires has been going on for years. But no one could develop materials for transistors that could both be "invisible" and maintain a high level of performance, the university said in a news release.
