I'm not sure How real this is but its very cool!!!
Samsung has released a video shofffwcasing the potential future look and feel of tablet computers, using an ultra-thin and flexible screen technology. The video, posted yesterday on YouTube, features Samsung's new AMOLED touchscreen that can be bent in all directions without losing functionality. Samsung unveiled this incredible new type of flexible OLED touchscreen technology at CES at the start of the year, showcasing a 4.5-inch smartphone hosting video content with a WVGA 800 x 480p resolution on a screen just 0.3mm thick. In the video, the Korean consumer electronics giant shows off a number of different real-world scenarios in which a tablet featuring bendable technology could be used.
People are seen in the video using the transparent device for a variety of different tasks, including scanning an augmented reality code on a menu, watching a 3D video, taking photos and translating a real-time conversation. Samsung is keen to harness the bendable technology for smartphones and tablets in the future and is understood to be developing a number of workable prototypes. Concept designs emerged earlier in the year hinting that the company would release its first flexible AMOLED phone at some point in 2012, and this video will only add to the rumours.
