Forget wearables, how about foldables?
Editor's note: Since Samsung seems willing to take on just about any idea, Crave's Eric Mack decided to suggest some projects he'd like to see the gargantuan Korean conglomerate take on, starting with the creation of a whole new market -- foldable electronics.
For years now, Samsung and others have been teasing prototype flexible displays, and Samsung just recently introduced the first smartphone with a curved screen. That's pretty nifty, but what I'd really like to see are fully foldable (or perhaps rollable) devices. Today's tablets are pretty great, but how much better could they be if they could be folded up to slip into your back pocket?
"But what about the batteries and other components!" you might shout in disbelief.
Fortunately, LG says it's already got that covered. Time to put all the pieces together and get me a device I can fold up and stuff in my wallet -- I nominate you for the job, Samsung.
