Apple Inc. Has Filed a New PatentDate Published: 2016-08-09
Apple Insider has revealed a new patent filing for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) that surrounds a highly complex iRing.
The story goes like this for Apple:
We start by looking at the patent filing directly from the USPTO. Here is a rendering that points to a microphone and buttons as well as sensors.
In what can only be described as an alarming amount of features, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) includes a description for (emphasis added):
- Operating System
- Communication Module
- Graphics Module
- Motion Module
- GPS Module
- Telephone Module
- Camera Module
- Instant Messaging Module
- Text Input Module
- Video Conference Module
- Stocks Widget
And that isn't even a comprehensive list. Then there's a map of functionality.
The Apple Inc. patent filing specifically discusses smartphones, tablets and the like and draws out their weaknesses, including the light emission. Then the patent filing goes on to read:
And Apple Inc. goes further: "Thus, a ring computing device with a display, touch-sensitive surface and/or one or more sensors to detect the intensity of a contact with the touch-sensitive surface are provided with faster, more efficient methods and interfaces for controlling external electronic devices, thereby increasing the effectiveness, efficiency, and user satisfaction with such devices."
Now, Apple Inc. files a lot of patents. CML Pro famously broke three of them surrounding a new social network to compete with Facebook, a new Augmented Reality platform for the iPhone and of course, the famed 320 degree casing for the iPhone. This makes number four -- and this one, of them all, sounds very real.
