Watch Samsung’s 9.1-inch OLED display stretch without breaking
An image of Samsung’s new stretchable prototype display was everywhere last week. Now we’ve got split-screen video of the 9.1-inch OLED in action. Unlike the flexible OLED that embraces the Galaxy S8 chassis, Samsung says that its stretchable display has the elasticity to bend in two directions, with up to 12mm of travel before returning to its original shape like a rubber ballon.
Samsung calls it “next-generation technology” that might be applied to wearables, most obviously, but also to “AI applications” — something I can only assume to mean shape-shifting cyborgs who’ll one day operate the puppet strings of society.
