This Could Be Big

See-Through Tablets in 2012?

This Could Be Big

While tablets are at the cutting edge of modern technology, Samsung Mobile Display wants to make the iPad look about as modern as the Ford Model T.

This week we got our hands on a Samsung commercial released in Korea for a see-through, flexible tablet that's unlike anything we've ever seen here at This Could Be Big, and we knew we had to find out more.

The big question is, could this thing be real?

Looking at the commercial it looks like it's out of a preview for the new Mission Impossible movie. It's a thin piece of glass that's as flexible as jell-o and can be rolled up like a newspaper. It's also expandable, 3-D and can be used as a real time translator.

Samsung Mobile Display is keeping their lips sealed for now, but expect more from them at the Consumer Electronics Show in January.

For now, to help uncover the mystery, we spoke with technology journalist Joanna Stern from the TheVerge.com to shine some light on this futuristic technology.
