Technology... or magic? Samsung shows off video of transparent, flexible screen - with 3D so real it looks like you can touch it
Samsung has said that it will start to ship 'bendy screened' gadgets in the first half of 2012 - with the first 'flexible' gizmos on the market certain to be mobile phones.
At technology shows, the Korean company has also demonstrated flexible screens just 0.3mm thick.
But its latest video demo shows off truly out-there technology - a 'tablet of the future' that offers instant translation, video, and a level of 3D beyond anything yet available.
Samsung's transparent, flexible AMOLED screen isn't as wacky as it seems - the company has already promised that it will ship flexible AMOLED devices in 2012, starting with mobile phones
This is where it all starts to get a little far-fetched - the screen seems to be able to 'throw' a holographic 3D image so solid it looks like you could touch it. Glasses-free 3D does exist - but it doesn't look like this
The screen has the functions of a high-end tablet computer - and appears to be able to translate instantly from French into Korean
