Apple Patent App Outlines Method for Bending Glass into a Curved Shape
Apple and just about every other technologycompany on the planet are constantly filing for patents. A lot of the tech that we see in patent applications never comes to be, the companies are just hedging their bets on the future of tech. A new patent application has surfaced from Apple that shows a way of bending glass.
The method shows what appears to be a flat piece of glass to start with that is bent using four little arms into a curved shape. While it's interesting to think that this might be showing a possible design for future iPhones or other devices, the last bending method could be used for other things as well. Considering it easier to produce flat sheets of glass, I could see the benefit in this bending method.
The image looks to me like it would be perfect for holding in the hand as a glass top for a touch-sensitive mouse. However, I think once the glass was bent, if you held the curve to your face it would make for a comfortable phone as well.
