samsung galaxy s transparent screen

Can you turn the screen of the Samsung Galaxy S transparent? Apparently it’s possible with an application called Road SMS from the Samsung app store. This program makes use of the camera of the Samsung Galaxy S to display the back view (which is normally blocked by the phone) over the screen whilst having a qwerty keyboard overlay for typing SMS messages.

This creates an awesomely cool illusion that turns the Samsung Galaxy S into a mobile phone with a transparent screen. Therefore it’s possible to SMS safely without the phone blocking your view while you’re walking on the streets. The drawback is probably the extra power that the application uses while it’s running, eventually draining the mobile phone’s battery more quickly.
