Samsung imagines see-through bendy tablet of the future
Yes, it'll be many a year before we're all running around the globe, unfolding our transparent OLED mobile internet devices - which will seemingly operate without batteries and circuitry - and gaining useful local knowledge through a mix of mobile broadband, augmented reality and 3D.
But, hey, who's to say Samsung, which suggests such a MID-tastic future in the following OLED promo video, hasn't got exactly that tucked up its sleeve?
Beat that, Apple.
Samsung is dead keen on OLED - and bendy OLEDs to boot. Not so long ago, it teased us with the notion of flexible smartphones, the screens for which it is looking to introduce sometime in 2012. ®
Bah - I've seen better
Bah, so what? a transparent, holographic display with no batteries. I've seen better - there's the guys with the matter transporter, the guys with the interstellar gate in a mountain, the folks making sexy androids...
What, all of those are faked? So was the Samsung video. Wake me when Samsung can demonstrate a REAL transparent, fold-able display.
This is awesome! Samsung seem to be a leading technology developer, where is everyone else?!
Samsung are just sheep...
...and never innovate at all!
Just like a no-button smartphone has an essential feature in being able to unlock the screen with no buttons, a no-anything device has an essential feature in being able to find it when it's been turned off and put down somewhere. Get a broad patent for that and you will own the market.
Kudos to Apple for making me think different. A few years ago I'd be trying think of amazing devices, these days I think of patent trickery and how to stifle innovation.
