I Really Hope This Samsung Patent Is a Joke

By Jamie Condliffe on at

I'm firmly on record as hating phone cases; as far as I'm concerned, they should all be burned. So a Samsung patent for phone skins that come with matching wallpaper images? I. Want. To. Vomit.

The patent application refers to a printed "film layer" that a user can stick on to a smartphone case. Then they choose a matching wallpaper, and they have an all-encompassing phone skin. First, it's not even a new idea. Second, it will probably just end up depicting something hilariously retro, or, or... stop it Samsung, I can't unsee what I've just seen.
