Japanese mobile company, NTT Docomo, teams up with Fujitsu to create a unique transparent OLED screen that houses touch sensors on both its front and back. Recently debuted at Wireless Japan 2012, the prototype marks the future of screens, allowing users to multitask on two screens with one device. Although the two-sided OLED is only housed in a small 2.4-inch screen with QVGA (320×240) resolution, plans to continue developing this technology could very well end up in replacing current smartphone screens with this dual screen.

At the exhibit, a demonstration showed that scrolling through the dual screen did not obscure the display, and users can easily reach the slide down notification bar on the other side of the screen easily with their index finger. Watch the video below for a more in-depth look at this innovative new technology
