During the next decade we are likely to see commercial products that will start to define the 'Post PC' Era of smart, networked objects that follow a new path of product development.  Users will interact with embedded devices beyond the keyboard and mouse.  We know that OLEDs offer a clear path to flexible, transparent display screens, but what about the combination of sensors and low power chips that make the 'screen' irrelevant for new applications.  If it is hard to imagine commercial Post PC applications for enterprise sectors, what about designs for education and entertainment markets based on visions like Impress project from Sillenet [via Vimeo]

  1. The more intuitive the better. However, it will probably take 10 more years before we truly see the “post-pc” era completely take over.

    This stuff needs more substance before it becomes dominant in the market place.

  2. I totally see how flexible screen could be useful in 3D modeling. Other examples were completely pointless. And what did it all have to do with “post PC era of smart, networked objects”??? Because a PC-type device cannot have a flexible screen?
