Samsung’s Galaxy Gear smartwatch and its rumoured Galaxy Glass device indicate that the company plans to rely heavily on experimentation as it innovates its way into the future. The true passion and excitement behind Samsung’s vision of the future is on full display in a concept video quietly released during the company’s most recent Analyst Day in Seoul, Korea.

“Display Centric World” (see video above) offers a glimpse at a world full of interactive displays in which nearly every surface, window and tabletop has the ability to show the user video content and context-specific data.

One of the first concept devices to make an appearance is an interactive coffee cup embedded with a fingerprint scanner that enables the cup to display the drinker’s health information directly on the cup’s surface via an imagined program called “My House Doctor.” The wrap-around cup display includes a diagram of the human anatomy as well as a real-time heart monitor.

Next we’re shown display that takes up an entire wall designed to look as though it’s part of the user’s real world environment. Shortly after, we see an ultra-thin translucent alarm clock about the height and width of an iPad that folds in half when the user turns off the alarm.

Of course, the use case for such a device might seem like something out of science fiction, that is, until you remember that Samsung has devoted a great deal of its resources toward delivering curved and foldable displays.

Perhaps one of the most immediately realisable concept devices shown in the video is a display-enabled kitchen cutting board that delivers information about the food the user is preparing right under her fingertips. While in use, the display can also be turned into a recipe display panel that lists the nutritional and caloric properties of all the ingredients currently being prepared.

In the area of mobile display concept solutions, the video then puts us inside a car in which the passenger has the ability to control various functions through the car’s interactive display. The window not only shows the current time and temperature, but it also allows direct manipulation of the vehicle’s heating and cooling system controls.
