It appears that Apple is seriously thinking of taking their iDevice retail packaging to the next level, Transformer style. Apple's invention is all about providing for packaging with multiple uses and functions after opening. In one embodiment, the packaging includes a base and a removable lid. The base converts into being a docking station for the iDevice. I guess the Transformers idea came about after Ive was madly inventing a new robotic hand that could test out Single and Multi-Touch surfaces automatically so that he wouldn't have to do it all day himself (ha!). What will he think of next?
