Samsung's "Future TV Zone" booth at CES featured some mysterious, information-absent displays apparently intended to be a demonstration of their technological prowess. While neither appears to have much application for the average consumer in a domestic setting, it's tough not to be wowed by the set-ups, the first of which features eight individual screens that can become one, and the second of which is a monitor that can change its aspect ratio by splitting in half, rotating each half 90 degrees, then coming back together:
Referring to the booth as "a tantalizing vision of the future of TV," Samsung Electronics' President of Visual Display Business, Hyun Suk Kim, stated that "We believe the possibilities for innovation in TV are truly endless, and in the years to come, customers will experience ever greater choice and control, as the current barriers around screen size, shape and versatility are overcome." That being said, there's no word on whether either of these concepts will ever see daylight, and for the life of me I can't think of what you'd use them for. But darn if they ain't cool.
