    A patent application has been published today by Samsung in South-Korea. It shows a 3-in-1 device that transforms from a watch into a phone, and even a tablet. This device is based on a stretchable OLED display.

    The display that is used can bend, fold and stretch into various shapes and forms, making for one adoptable piece , as the patent explicitly points out, OLED technology. Samsung has filed patents in the past with a stretchable display, but this is the first one showing a more solid application for such technology. What we see here is a concept much more than an actual product.

    We are still waiting for Samsung’s first foldable display phones to appear on the market.

    What do you think? Do we need devices that wrap around your wrist, but stretch into a phone or tablet when required? I think that it is a very interesting concept!

    I'm considering patenting a jacket that has feathers attached to it. That way, when you flap your arms, you can fly just like a bird!

    That's the best way I can describe what I saw in that patent concept.

    If they are able to pull something like that off it would be amazing. Seems like we have a better chance of getting UDP from Verizon before something like this will come to existence.
