Samsung Envisions A Display Centric World [CONCEPT VIDEO]

As today is the first day of a brand new year, I thought it would be appropriate to kick it off with a stellar concept video from Samsung. Samsung is known for their displays - Smart TVs, smartphones and tablets - so it make sense that they have in mind a world where the screen is everywhere. 

This type of future may not be as far off as you think. This year we are expected to see growth in the flexible screen and wearable tech space which means it may only be five to ten years before this could all become a reality. 

I’m a sucker for concept videos and this one is a great one. What do you think? Is this the future you see coming in the next five to ten years?
