Samsung Display and chip maker Intel has created the world’s first 17-inch slideable display for PCs that slides smoothly into your hands without opening up.

During Intel’s Innovation Day event, Samsung Display CEO JS Choi demonstrated a prototype PC that slides from a 13-inch tablet to a 17-inch display.

“We are announcing the world’s first 17-inch slideable display for PC. The device will also cater to various needs of large screen and portability.

The device turns a 13-inch tablet into a 17-inch monitor with a flexible display and sliding mechanism.

The companies have not yet disclosed when this slideable PC will be available in the market.

Intel also showcased a range of new hardware, software and services aimed at helping its broad ecosystem of developers overcome challenges and deliver a new generation of innovation.

The chip-maker also unveiled Unison, a new software solution that provides seamless connectivity between phones (Android and iOS) and PCs – starting with functionality including file transfers, text messaging, phone calls and phone notifications.

It will be available for new laptops later this year.

The company also announced XeSS or Xe Super Sampling, a gaming performance accelerator that works on Intel discrete and integrated graphics.
