Apple Patent App Outlines Method for Bending Glass into a Curved Shape

Apple and just about every other technology company 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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
