Samsung has launched a concept demo for a flexible, translucent AMOLED display that can run 3D, potentially becoming the next big thing since the iPad.

Samsung has launched a concept demo for a flexible, translucent AMOLED display that can run 3D, potentially becoming the next big thing since the iPad.

 
The Korean electronics giant has already demonstrated flexible display technology, some as thin as 0.3mm, but this latest project shows just how far the company could go.
 
While this is still in the early conceptual stage and may never become reality, the demonstration is pretty impressive. Samsung shows how a user can bend the screen, which looks like a thin piece of plastic. It can be seen through, which means no more walking into lamp posts while staring at a tablet screen. 
 
 
It can also display glasses-free 3D that is vastly superior to 3D technology that currently exists. In the demonstration it initially looks like augmented reality, and this might also be a proposed feature, but since people on the street appear to react to the projected image it seems to be much more than that.
 
It may be years before we see anything like this, but with fierce competition in the tablet computer sector, Samsung might be willing to invest a lot of money to make this a reality. Samsung suggested we could see the first flexible smartphones and tablets next year.
