Apple is already seeking patents to develop smart shoes and apps that could turn strangers into walking ATMs, so news that the company may be developing a smart watch should come as no surprise.
Citing sources inside Apple’s Cupertino headquarters, a recent story in the New York Times confirmed Apple is working on a wristwatch made of curved glass.
Two sources said that the watch would operate on Apple’s iOS platform and would distinguish itself from the competition due to the company’s knowledge about the curved glass that will be used.
“You can certainly make it wrap around a cylindrical object and that could be someone’s wrist,”. “Right now, if I tried to make something that looked like a watch, that could be done using this flexible glass.”
