Apple’s wild new patent covers TV and advanced 5D Technology

“The US Patent and Trademark Office officially published a series of twenty-five newly granted patents for Apple Inc. today,” Jack Purcher reports for Patently Apple.

“This particular report covers a single, wild and crazy patent that touches on advancing television, advanced 5D technology, interactive gaming, teleconferencing, advanced tactile feedback technology, virtual reality data gloves and even a unique touch signature for starting a future vehicle,” Purcher reports.

Purcher reports, “Apple’s newly granted patent provides them with a wide range of potential advantages. Here are just a few of those listed in the patent [including] a potential ‘four’ and ‘five dimensional’ capability, wherein the force-vector direction as well as the magnitude of force is measured.”

Tons more, including Apple’s patent application illustrations an diagrams, in the full article here.


  1. “… just a few of those listed in the patent [including] a potential ‘four’ and ‘five dimensional’ capability…”

    Apple just invented time travel?

    1. Of course not. Some subatomic particles have been doing that since the universe banged itself into existence.

      But, as with all things, Apple took the idea and perfected it and made it easy to use.

      Look for the iWayBack at your local Apple retail store this fall.


      1. Different string theories = different required dimensions. I read about one that requires twelve dimensions. The favored ‘M’ theory requires ten.

        Needless to say, we’re still feeling out way in the dark.

  2. Patent. It’s good only when it can actually serve its purpose. Those lawyers those judges those customers… What can we expect?

    Good that even when Apple lost their patents cases, they are still leading miles away from those shameless copiers.

  3. “They copied all they could follow,
    But they couldn’t copy my mind.

    “So I left ’em sweatin’ and schemin’,
    a year and a half behind…”
