It may be a while until we see MIT’s LEGO-inspired AI chip that can be stacked and reconfigured, but the Intel x Samsung ‘Slidable PC’ concept may be coming sooner than later. Put simply, it consists of a 17-inch screen that can be rolled up partially when not in use by simply pushing on one side.
When rolled up, it can be used as a 13-inch tablet, which puts it on par with the iPad Pro, Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro, etc. When fully unfurled, we imagine it could also double as a portable monitor for computers or game consoles. Unfortunately, there’s no word yet on when we’ll see this in an actual product like the modular Framework Laptop.

We’re announcing the world’s first 17-inch slidable display for PCs. This device will satisfy various needs for a larger screen and portability as well,” said Joo Sun Choi, Samsung President, Semiconductor, Display and LED Business in US.
