you can read the full document, here. for you, busy people: the green-lit ‘flying display’ might include an observation system, posture correction, voice recognition, a vibration system, an obstacle detection unit, and, as always, that good stuff, wi-fi. samsung describes their invention as, ‘a display device capable of changing an angle thereof based on a gaze of a user while moving along with the user by automatically tracking the user, without an additional operation performed by the user.’ what do you think?
