Oh, why does Samsung tease us with this transparent flexible tablet video?

by Mark R

Yes, Samsung puts out a lot of interesting electronic products, and I believe that the company has been developing a flexible OLED display. Rumor has it that the company will unveil this in 2012, but I’m guessing this won’t be at CES.

What I see in this video after the jump is something that is pretty amazing, and I want to see it working as soon as possible. For gosh sakes, just stop reading right now and just watch it!

Yes, this man is holding what appears to be a transparency from an overhead projector. How in the world do the graphics appear on this device? Please tell me that this technology actually exists, but I am guessing the effect is accomplished with CG, especially the way those images seem to float off the page. What is that, holograms?

I will have to say that I like the way one can talk to someone who speaks a different language. Man, that could really change communication as we know it.

You will notice that everyone in this video seems pretty darn impressed at this guy’s device. Is this what the first guy who had an iPad had to deal with? I sort of wonder why they went that direction, I would have gone with one of Microsoft’s concept videos where everyone is accustomed to this new technology.

Well, Samsung, you had better make this concept video a reality, as I want this transparent tablet.

I don’t see the appeal of transparent tablets, etc. Won’t what you’re seeing through the tablet get in the way of what you’re trying to see on the tablet?
