1. Flexible display patent
One of the latest patents to surface has fuelled suggestions that the iWatch could feature a “Bi-stable spring with flexible display’. Filed with the U.S Patent and Trademark Office back in August 2011 the claim outlines a flexible display that slaps onto your wrist and can then communicate with other devices via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi to access features like changing songs in playlists, or review recent calls like other smart watch devices. Screen orientation would be aided by on board sensors like gyroscopes while the use of solar panels is said to help boost battery life.
