You're cheapening the thing by talking about it. -- Anthony Bourdain

This quote is so true when it is applied to the following videos.

But I'm sure they don't mind me cheapening them because they are still just prototypes.

Even though they are just prototypes, they are already looking real capable and functional. Still, that won't be the end of the story, because a bending device isn't so much of a push for people to buy their phones. Something has to be as ground-breaking as the "Designed for Humans" Galaxy S3 in order to actually generate the wows. 

With that said, we are already looking at the future of smartphones, phablets, tablets and even refrigerators and air-conditioners.

cheapen -- (vb) [T] disapproving to make someone or something seem less valuable or important so that people respect them less
