Presenting Apple patents which are either trashy or genius. Be the judge.

Apple Patent Expert Jack Purcher once said:

“Jobs’s vision for the digital lifestyle a decade ago is still on a roll. It’s innovation at its finest. But it began with a vision — and that’s the difference.”

The 563 patents Apple-approved patents made the previous year are proofs that digital lifestyle is still on a roll. Patents are sometimes exaggerated or unique ideas that are associate to a particular popular brand of technology.

A website called Patently Apple showcases some patents which verged to either crazy or genius. The site’s expert, Jack Purcher refers to the patents as an idea to envision future technologies who might come up in the long run. Examples of which are the evolution of the iOS devices and third party add ons.

As Patently Apple’s Jack Pucker puts it:

“Many have asked me why I think that Apple is more innovative than others. I usually answer that question the same way each time,” says Purcher. “I’m not sure that they are on a technical level. The difference is that Apple has an inspired leader and CEO who, for decades, has had a real vision of where technology should go.”

See the five patents that have the potential to go mainstream after the skip.
