Patents on inventions are an inescapable fact of the modern world. Though information may be free, the rights to a product that is visible and of this world are not handed over to anyone lightly. People had to fight wearisome battles over patents with one party arguing in the courts over how it got there first.
Leaving that aside for a while, Apple has been granted a little less than three dozen spanking new patents this very day in its history. We will discuss one of these, and it is a very useful device indeed. This is none other than the combinatorial invisible input display device. These self-same twin features of input device and display system can be made clear as the light of day by a power source that has an illuminative influence on them. The prototype for this complex module was already in working condition in 2006. It sure has come a long way since those days.
The rear view of an iDevice bears an uncanny resemblance to an iPhone. There is an invisible push button built into the basic structure of the device. Upon touching it with your finger a sensor that detects movement activates a Light Emitting Diode that makes the in-visible object distinctly visible.
Now this cool feature can be further applied to a number of other inventions. The day every key and button of a computer becomes like the invisible/visible display device, the first self-contained, seamless design will be made available for everyone to use. Apple will have made a mark on the planet’s technology in the shape of a relatively permanent silicon footprint.
Such concept-making for future devices is a very exciting and rewarding field. It lies on the cutting edge of extraordinary electronics and creative computer science. Among some of the other patents granted to Apple are: an antenna system and a magnetic connector.
The ultimate and vivid reality that is staring us in the face is that some day in future times the remote controls, game players and Macbooks will all feature this patent in each and every aspect of their make-up. Such a rosy future is always welcome with open arms by the diligent workers at Apple Incorporated. After all, they deserve it!
