Sure, progress has been made from the boom box on the shoulder, but even the lightest of headphones come with cords that get more twisted than Twisted Sister playing Twister. The Dash is making a bold move towards being your MVP on every run, lift, or extreme sporting adventure, as these wireless in ear-headphones pair up with smartphones and Mp3 players, and the internal 4GB memory lets you store 1,000 songs. The Dash also tracks your vital fitness stats and monitors your heart rate, oxygen saturation and the energy you’ve spent. The built-in mic and Bluetooth let you take calls, and the whole thing even works underwater.

Curved Cell Phone Screen

The US patent, No. 8,603,574, is for a manufacturing process that would enable a screen to remain responsive to touch despite the effects of curving or shaping. Although Samsung has been the only one so far to create a live demonstration, Apple is the one that actually owns the technology. As part of the initial filing made in 2010, Apple specifically provides examples of its use in displays, touch pads and even mice. It also explains that current methods for curving a display result in a less sensitive and responsive screen; the process creates ‘dead’ areas. Apple’s approach uses a film that is applied to a screen or surface before it is shaped, which would ensure that its whole surface remains touch-sensitive once curved. The filing also gives examples of more complex shapes, like waves as well as simple curves, that would be possible thanks to the process that Apple is patenting. Whether or not the patent is a signal of Apple’s future intent remains to be seen but there is little doubt that curved and flexible displays are set to play a huge role in the future of mobile device design. Samsung and LG, two of Apple’s biggest competitors in the smartphone and tablet space, have already launched smartphones with curved, flexible displays as showcases for their own display capabilities.
