(PhysOrg.com) -- Tai Chiem, a designer has an eye towards the future. The cylindrical roll-up OLED PSP designed by Chiem is stunning in appearance and looks like a small spotting scope. The innovation within the Tai Chiem design is what is causing the stir in the portable gaming arena.

An electrical charge powering the Chiem OLED display stiffens the screen to allow near bezel-less game play. Stereo speakers on each end of the Chiem Cylinder are multi-function. The stereo speakers serve as a jog wheel and camera controller. Tai Chiem envisions Sony incorporating several joysticks into the design. Estimates by some gaming aficionados think the Chiem Cylinder design could hit the market within the next three years.

Concerns by some gamers include the need for incorporating a micro-SDHC slot. SanDisk has a PSP Memory Pro Duo 1 GB memory card on the market. It seems SanDisk would have little difficulty developing a micro-SDHC card for Sony Playstation games including the Chiem Cylinder. Other concerns expressed by fans include the concern about keeping the OLED display stiff and erect once it is rolled out.

Tai Chiem relies on an electrical charge which he believes will keep the rolled out display erect. Other are concerned that game play could be hampered by a design that appears on the surface not to include ergonomic design features. Some would like a design that included a projector that would allow the game screen to appear on a wall.

All things considered, Tai Chiem has developed a dazzling design for mobile electronic devices. The thought of combining game play, camera and a cell phone into one device that can be rolled up for easy portability is within reach utilizing the Chiem futuristic design. It is up to Sony and its partners to make it a reality within the coming years. There seems little in the way of technological impediments facing Sony engineers. Where there is a demand for innovation and excitement, there is always a way to bring it to fruition.
