Well the future is now, people and our geek dreams are coming true each and every day. CES 2013 is no different. Samsung Electronics senior vice president of their display lab, Brian Berkeley, showed off a phone yesterday that contains a thin color screen attached on one end that's actually flexible enough to roll. Geekgasam.
During Samsung's keynote address
at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas Wednesday at The Venetian, a prototype Windows smartphone that features a flexible OLED display was revealed to the world by the Korean electronics company.
Even though you can't actually fold the screen totally in half, this is a radical glimpse of great things to come. Minority Report here we come...Take a gander below:
But that's not all, folks! Some of the coolest news to come out of this is that the electronics company also screened a video of a concept for the future, a device the size of a smartphone that opens up like a book into a tablet-sized screen. So amazing.
CES, the world's largest annual consumer technology trade show, runs through January 11 and is expected to feature 3,100 exhibitors showing off their latest products and services to about 150,000 attendees.
