Technology Stocks News 1

Apple Inc (NASDAQ AAPL) recently won rights to another patent, this time it is for a flexible display with special functionality. The patent was awarded to Apple by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The new patent describes various controlled mechanisms that can be used for flexible displays.

The patent also includes ideas to replace physical buttons with durable alternatives as well as a new way to detect sound output. The new patent also discusses various ways to utilize the flexible display for many input methods. It even points out ways you can place flexible material over actuators which creates new buttons on demand. This also offers ways to overlay them on existing button features.

A flexible display offers even more benefits. One of those potential benefits could allow Apple Inc (NASDAQ AAPL) to expand screen space and make it possible to create devices with all-display design that reveals new buttons as it “grows”.

This new feature could be a huge win for those with vision problems, however it is important to point out the coolest trick may actually be the integrated diagrams in the display that are used to detect input sound by observing vibrations in the flexible screen material or used as a speaker to output sound.

This patent was clearly designed for the iPhone and iPad, but it could also be used in the trackpad of a MacBook to modify the surface and lift the topbook away from the bottom as an easier way to open.
