  1. Samsung researchers in South Korea have designed and built a prototype of a seamless foldable Active-matrix organic light-emitting diode (AMOLED) display. The display's mechanical and optical robustness were tested by…

    Just think... a phone that can fold out to a tablet. Thanks for the very interesting article.

    Hmm... interesting. We've all been dreaming of folding display panels for years, maybe someday we'll actually get one?

    Make an e book reader that you can hold like an actual book by using each screen for a page.

    Time Travel cannot exist and they have already created working teleportation , albeit on a very small scale. They have already created an invisible cloak and levitated a tiny piece of gold, again, on very basic and/or small scale but the technology is still there in its infant form.

    How about they sort out global warming...

    People in 2050 will pick out their watches, pop them open - out comes a crumbled piece of cellphone. They shake it once, it unfolds to the size of a tablet, wow - the future is near ;)

    Based on Nikola Tesla's work in the fields of electromagnetism, scientists have also levitated several ferromagnetic objects ranging from metal bowling-balls to a package of yoghurt.

    You should really say, traveling back in time cannot exist. Traveling into the future is possible, Albert Einstein theory of relativity proves this.

    A very promising hardware development neither the less.

    You won't be alive when they make spaceships capable of interstellar travel.

    They won't make spaceships capable of interstellar travel.

    Not at the rate they're going, lol. We're just taking steps backwards, it seems.

    Now awaiting Nintendo to jump on this technology for next gen "Game & Watch".
  16. "How about they sort out global warming..."

    I read somewhere that they have a possible solution already.
  17. Silly gizmos that make you think less. Why exercise your memory when you have all the info you need with you, right ? I'm not the alarmist type, but a time will come when the "information age" that's supposed to help us will be our downfall.

    Am I the only one that misses live concerts where people would sway their lighters and not put up their cells to take a shot ?
  18. Yeah, go to Pulto get a chunk of ice and drop it in the ocean, job sorted.

    Cellphones, tablets? Come on people, I'm thinking of ePaper, as in a screen the size of a normal piece of paper, and about as thick as a piece of posterboard or construction paper that is self powering and pulls its display via wifi/NFC, etc.

    Guest@4:49 AM: Or worse yet, they have a lighter app on their phones to "simulate" having a lighter... Where's the fun in that? =/

    Yeah, I know.

    It's like those *****s in the middle ages who thought men couldn't fly.

    Oh wait...

    Time travel into the future happens constantly... GPS sattelites are adjusted for it, and astronauts aboard the IIS age about 30seconds less over the course of a few months than they would have if they had stayed on earth. Regarding into the past... to quote stephen hawking... "I've never met anyone from the future'. (cause it's impossible)

    How about something useful, like fusion. Or something that really improves my quality of life like something to make my morning commute obsolete.
