Designer Sungmin Lee eyes scroll-like technology to create the most portable conceptual tablet on the market

We're used to Samsung Electronics creating new and unique products for their consumers, but this technology, as conceptualized by Sungmin Lee, is unlike anything we've seen before, and it makes you wonder if it's even possible. At CES, Samsung announced that they're working on a tablet that will use bendable technology, which certainly lends weight to Lee's roll-up concoction.

Is It Possible?

Lee's Samsung Flexible Roll idea seems almost unattainable. The design is reminiscent of an ancient scroll. When rolled up, the tablet looks like a plastic tube with a slit on one side for the screen to come out. With a push of a button, the touch screen is supposed to roll out and back in for ultimate portability.
