The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office officially published a series of 80 newly granted patents for Apple Inc. today. In this particular report we cover one of Apple's dreamy never-to-be inventions. The implausible invention envisioned a device wherein the topography of the device could morph from an iPod to a phone pad to a calculator to an iPhone and more. Our original report on this invention covered shape shifting nodes; the morphing topography; virtual buttons; virtual keyboard; examples of shifting node formations; materials; shape shifting based on room temperature and more. Review our original report for more details. We wrap up this week's granted patent report with our traditional listing of the remaining granted patents that were issued to Apple today.
