A patent application from Apple outlines a device with a flexible screen worn on your wrist. Possibly the design for the rumored iWatch.
The patent application describes a "wearable accessory device" which "includes a flexible display coupled to a bi-stable spring." Apple is referring to it as a "slap wrap" type of bracelet.
Additional information contained in the application include a "a sensor for detecting a change between the flat state and the curled state of the bi-stable spring substrate," a "kinetic energy gathering component" as well as "recharging a battery housed within the accessory device by way of a plurality of ambient light energy collectors disposed across a portion of one surface of the accessory device."
Assuming this is the iWatch, what do you think the potential business benefits could be?
