Apple is looking to take the stylus — or Apple Pencil — to the next level, as Designboom has come across a patent for what is essentially a magic wand of sorts that will allow you to draw on virtually anything, even air.
With images coming courtesy of World Intellectual Property Organization, we get a brief feel for Apple’s impending product, which could prove to be a game-changer if carried out.
The device appears to utilize “a motion and orientation sensor, a camera, or an electromagnetic- or sound-based triangulation scheme” to track movement.
Still, there is much to be explained surrounding Apple’s recently-uncovered patent, but if it is in fact an “air pencil,” as Designboom calls it, look out.
