Hey, Samsung Makes Advanced Fighter Cockpits Too

Samsung, best known for awesome TVs, tablets that get them in legal trouble and crispy new smartphones, is more than just stuff at Harvey Norman: they're designing the cockpit for South Korea's K-FX stealth fighter. Watch out, Cupertino!

The demo was spotted at the Seoul Air Show by Flightglobal's Stephen Trimble, and shows a whopping front display, packed with weapons and navigation info. I can't tell if it's touch-capable, though I'm going to assume not — trying to get a tablet to run responsively on the sidewalk is hard enough, to say nothing of an aerial dogfight. At any rate, a pretty shameless ripoff of the iPad: note the use of the colour black, rectangularity and electricity. [Flightglobal]
