The iWatch rumors just got more real. A new Apple patent got discovered by AppleInsider that is more than hint that Apple is actively working on the iWatch. The patent describes a wearable device with flexible screen and slap bracelet.
Slap bracelets are a bi-stable spring. My son is right now playing with such a slap bracelet that has a reflective surface used to wear around your leg or hand on the streets when it is dark.
Apple proposes in the patent to embed electronics, flexible display, the bi-stable steel spring into a fabric covered and sealed device.
A slap on smart watch sounds really cool. I hope Apple is close to make this technically happen and the patent is not a far out idea.
There are already slap bracelet watches on the market. Watch the short video below to get the idea.

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.
