In its headquarters in Cupertino, California, the company is apparently experimenting with wrist-like watches made of curved glass, which some believe it could look like the current iPod Nano strapped to a wrist. Such a smart watch would run on Apple’s iOS platform and what makes this Apple watch unique is its ability to curve around the human hand, and that it is made entirely out of glass.
The Apple smart watch could feature a 1.5-inch touch-screen display, which will be manufactured in association with Intel, and Bluetooth capability.
An Apple employee said that Bob Mansfield, Apple’s senior vice president, has been interested in the latest wearable technologies, particularly in devices that connect through Bluetooth, capable of sharing data from the human body.
If smartphones do become smart watches and smart glasses, Apple seems to have the technology to make standout wearable computers.
Last year the company filed patents for displays that sit over the eye and stream information to the retina. Given that the iPod Nano is about the size of an overfed ant, the company clearly knows how to make small devices, too.
Apple did not release any comments about these latest reports.
Since devices are diversifying and the human body represents a new area of innovation, projects like Apple smart watch or Google Glass have a place in our future.
What do you think about this concept? Is Apple smart watch a possible gadget on the market in the future? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
