Samsung patent showcases ‘smart device-skins’

Updated 4 years ago

The U.S. Patent & Trademark Office recently published details surrounding a Samsung patent describing a new technology that will allow users to take an image and electronically wrap it around their devices, PatentBolt reported on Friday. The invention uses a “smart device-skin” or “film layer” that is integrated into the device. At any given time, a user will be able to change the appearance of a handset using the proposed chameleon-like technology. The South Korea-based vendor believes this new smart device-skin technology could become the next big thing and is even considering a retail version to be sold as an accessory for older Samsung smartphones.
