“This morning Patently Apple discovered a killer patent application from Apple that was published in Europe,” Jack Purcher reports for Patently Apple.

“Apple’s killer invention describes flexible wraparound displays for a possible future iPhone and/or other devices,” Purcher reports. “The patent describes sapphire and transparent displays used in a form factor created by an alumina powder liquidmetal process. Apple further describes some very interesting applications taking advantage of this kind of continuous wraparound display that could be ideal for a future wristband computer that we reported on earlier this year.”

Purcher reports, “Without a doubt, this patent application is one of the best of the year… Another Liquidmetal patent was also published today in the US under number 20130333165 titled ‘Fastener made of Bulk Amorphous Alloy.'”
