Apple has long been known for thinking outside of the box.
Luckily it’s often possible to get a hint of what Apple has in the works, just by looking at its many patent applications.
It’s important to note that Apple files for many more patents than it will actually use, employing a protective strategy that quickly annoys those tired of legal patent battles in the tech industry.
It’s a time-consuming job to monitor the slew of patents that Apple files for every week, but thankfully the team over at Patently Apple offer a categorized collection of the tech giant’s patents — complete with analysis.
We’ve gone ahead and collected the craziest patents for you to peruse, just don’t base your stock purchases on them.
