Apple has filed a patent for an iWatch-like device with a flexible touchscreen display, Mikey Campbell of AppleInsider reports.
The patent, which Apple filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in August 2011, is for a "Bi-stable spring with flexible display" that conforms to your wrist or other parts of the body.
The device, according to the patent, would have a continuous display and be able to connect with other portable devices like the iPhone and even more basic handsets, via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
With the device, users would be able to do things like adjust the order of a playlist, see recent phone calls, and respond to text messages, according to the patent.
The "iWatch" device is sounding cooler the more I learn about it...
Two years later. Still waiting.
