Samsung was awarded a patent on the 13th of February for a 'Flying Display Device' which would be controlled by the voice and eyes. Samsung is considering the creation of flying devices, which would be able to interpret your gestures, eye movements, and voice commands. So just by turning your head, your pupil movement or lifting your eyebrows, you can control the device. The drone has a screen attached to its body frame and it looks like a tablet connected to a drone.
Illustrations of the Flying Display Device indicates that the display is integrated into the center of the drone, while the screen is borne on four small propellers built around it to enable the device get airborne. The motors swivel around moving the screen to a more suitable viewing angle for the person in front of it. The patent does not give us explicit details on the function that the display can perform but it can perform a communication function.
Samsung is not the only one with the idea of creating innovative drones as two months ago, LG patented a drone with an innovative landing. Samsung might alter the design or add more features to the patent. But then like most patent, it might not see the light of day. Although no official statement has been gotten from Samsung on whether it will be seeing this patent through to the marketplace. We are however delighted that Samsung is looking into making innovative drones.
