Besides being a veritable concierge to the world, the device would also do such old-fashioned things as make phone calls and take pictures. And because the handheld is transparent, you can avoid bumping into people or falling into fountains while text messaging.

Much ado has been paid to the device's AMOLED (active-matrix organic light-emitting diode) display. Active-matrix OLED displays include a thin film transistor that acts as series of electrical switches that control the flow of electricity to each pixel.

Considered to be a leader in AMOLED technology, Samsung has already demonstrated flexible AMOLED screens. And with multiple translation and 'Aura' apps already out there, it's only a matter of time before Samsung's vision of the future becomes tomorrow's reality.
