    Feast your eyes on some screen tech innovations that are simply mind blowing. Some of this tech is not far off, can you say Samsung Smart Window? The concepts in this video are the product of TAT’s open innovation project, and should find their way into your handset, work space and bathrooms sometime in the near future. This statement from TAT (The Astonishing Tribe) describes a company on the bleeding edge of tech looking to take things to a whole other level:

    As an interesting sidebar, 2 months after this video appeared (2010), RIM picked up TAT. We'd love to see this tech hit some Android devices, how about you?

    The expandable screens are pretty cool. I've been looking forward to those for some time - will pretty much eliminate the need for a tablet (and perhaps why Apple is so defensive over smartphone marketshare, because the smartphone eventually kills the tablet and pc space).

    But spare me the wifi connected mirror. I can certainly afford not to be connected for 2 minutes a day (nor do I want to be!).

    If we are seriously able to get an expandable screen like that, my mind is officially blown. Literally, I might die from shock. How would that make that?! Those.. "bendable" screens is one thing, but wow!

    This is why I love technology so much. Even though it's not complete reality, the ideas that lead to innovation is amazing.

    Good question. I always assumed this would be done with a "roll-out" type screen since there have been proto-types of that. But that is far more polished and looks more like a screen that "stretches". In that case, I would assume pixel density would decrease proportionally as you stretch. So a base 1920x1080 might stretch to triple the area to yield only 720p.

    Agreed. I have no idea how those expandable screen would be made but I would pick one up in a heartbeat :blink:

    I've been waiting for these type of screens for some time now. Anyone else remember that goofy SciFi show of a several years ago, that had bald androgynous aliens that
    seemed to be nice and help us but where here for their own reasons? Their communicator had a slide out screen, very useful, but only if it has a kickstand.

    Yeah, but that wouldn't really matter. At that distance, or even a few feet if you have the screen sitting so friends could see it, your eyes can't even distinguish the difference between 1080 and 720, hence why the new 720 resolution phones are considered true HD. If screens could manage what is being shown here I assure you lack of detail is not going to be the issue.

    Edit: on a serious note, how are you supposed to browse forums and be unproductive at work when your boss can see right through your screen? :happy3:

    With the exception of the expandable display, everything there is doable. a few more generations of SoC's to improve the speed v. size/cost ratio.

    We won't see that expandable display for a long time, like 50 years, if ever. I am unaware of any technology that exists to achieve that in the manner shown.

    Agreed. Nothing that was shown was really to far out there except for the that expandable display and Sweeden winning the World Cup. Look at some things like the Microsoft Surface which has a tiny camera next to each individual pixel.

    I feel like the expandable display would require some type of regenerative material for it to expand in and out like that. Like you said I don't really know of anything that can do that.
