Apple Receives Patents On Flexible Devices, Lifestream Smart-Glasses


Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) was granted 28 new patents Tuesday, including what could be a bendable iPhone and Lifestream, a competitor to Google Glass.

“Apple states that future flexible electronic devices may include flexible housing members and flexible internal components. Rigid and flexible internal components may be mounted in the flexible housing.

“Flexible internal components may include flexible batteries such as batteries having rigid and flexible portions, batteries formed from multiple rigid portions joined in a flexible joint, and batteries formed from flexible battery layers,” according to Patently Apple.

Apple’s Lifestream glasses “collect unscripted data, add more meaning and use out of the data, and bind the data to services."

Rather than jotting notes on a piece of paper, Lifestream can collect and organize the data for the user.

“What type of data? The patent gives a few examples of what it could collect from a conversation, besides raw audio and video: facial recognition; ‘respiration patterns, ... pupil dilation, blinking, tears, redness,’” as reported by CNN Money.

Apple recently traded at $105.72, down 0.43 percent.
