This year the whole world was abuzz with the next big thing in home entertainment: 3D TVs! Well… perhaps not the whole world as much as the companies selling them. But even as this market still has to clear a lot of hurdles before becoming mainstream -- such as high prices, viewing angles, or the need for special glasses -- Samsung is already taking the concept to the next level with a new kind of OLED panel that can fold onto itself and display 3D content.
It’s important to note that right now this is just a concept and the practical uses you could give to this technology are a bit unclear -- perhaps a large enough flexible display could provide for an immersive 3D experience by literally wrapping around your field of vision. The concept was shown off at the FDP International 2010 show and Samsung believes that displays like this could be made in the next 5 to 10 years.
