The foldable future

We love those moments when something from sci-fi suddenly appears in real life. This is one of those moments. Samsung has shown off a screen that you can fold in half, mde out of a magic sandwich of two glass panels on a rubber backing. Unfolded, it provides a seamless image, but folded it could mean a 10-inch tablet fitting in your pocket.

In the long run, screens like this could allow the merger of smartphones and tablets altogether, as we use devices which fit in our pockets and our palms but, where needed, can be unfolded to double- or even quadruple-size. Maybe Sony's folding S2 tablet isn't as crazy as it seems, but a glimpse of the future?
