This is a patent application filed by Apple and published this morning. It’s likely not a final design, but it’s definitely Apple trying to find a way to create something that wraps around the wrist like a watch. The patent application is for a wrist-mounted flexible screen. Sounds familiar, huh?
According to TechCrunch, it’s could work much like those old slap bracelets my generation used to play with and wear in the early 90s.
It also mentions using the watch to adjust playlists, check recent calls, using it as an input device for Maps and more. It’s an interesting idea. We do wonder if Apple will indeed make a watch, or if the idea will ultimately be scrapped.
