Video: Samsung imagines a weird and wonderful display-centric world

by: Bogdan PetrovanDecember 27, 2013

Regardless of what device you are using to read this right now, there’s a good chance you’re looking at a display made by Samsung. The Korean’s conglomerate is one of the world’s largest makers of displays for consumer electronics, from smartwatches to giant curved OLED TVs, and everything in between.

With innovations like flexible displays and transparent panels slowly making their way to actual products, the future is wide open for Samsung Display. In the video above, published in November during the Analyst Day 2013 event where Samsung outlined its plans for the next years, the company imagines a future of omnipresent displays.

Some of the applications shown in the video may seem far-fetched, but the foundation for similar breakthroughs has been laid. Samsung, LG, and other manufacturers already work on unbreakable, flexible, transparent, or incorporable panels, even though early commercial products, such as the Galaxy Round and the LG G Flex, are not that impressive.

What innovation from the video would you love to see made real?

    Unbreakable and foldable displays are the only interesting things in that video for me, others are just too much

    • MadCowOnAStick

      I want a smart window :(

    A sincere request to samsung, please optimize your bloated softawre on existing devices before creating any more devices.

    And everything will only work between Samsung devices. Of course.

    But of course, why not do shopping and start a video conversation on the windows of a public cafe.

    Samsung is a dick to privacy

    I would rather *not* have *everything* be a display, thanks, especially not a window. There are still people uncomfortable using voice commands in public; Samsung thinks they want to chat with others on a huge display in the middle of a store in public, too?

    Well good luck with that smooth experience using TOUCHWIZ, lol.

    • AndroidBoss

      Touchwiz is so laggy.

    BAD AZZ ….

  • Krzysztof Bryk

    it is a promotional video showing off some of the concepts from late 2012 – nothing fancy here just a rendred showoff of possibilities …

  • Jacques Hragar

    Would rather a display that is simultaneously a battery

  • wmsco1

    I don’t have enough money!

    • MadCowOnAStick

    I’d like one of those desktop, um, computers. What an obvious idea. Surprized no one is already selling them…

  • imalwayswatching

    why do I feel like this is an almost complete copy of this video from corning in 2012

    • Desery Charles

      why do i agree with you…wow…still want most of them in my lifetime

  • Desery Charles

    i would love to see that happen in my lifetime…maybe that’s what they intend to do with the new OS that they are developing (Tiigen i think it’s called)
