It's always interesting to follow up on Dell inspiron 1501 akku, it never hurts to let our imaginations run wild and dream of future implementations we could see applied to products from the Cupertino company. In past times here in AppleWeblog we talked about future plans for Facetime, the possibility of wireless charging of devices, and natural gestures. Not to be outdone, today presented two new patents that will ignite their technological fantasies: the implementation of solar panels on the devices and the development of flat keyboard without keys.

Solar panels on iPods, iPhones, and iPads

Apple and other technology companies would be evaluating the implementation of solar panels on their future products aimed at consumers. According to recent statements, this project would be in an advanced stage and Apple would already be in contact with several firms in Taiwan that specialize in the development of solar panels for mobile devices.

"Samsung and Apple have been evaluating the potential niche market for consumer products and solar energy have been considering the inclusion of Taiwan-based companies to their supply chains. However, according to them, these Dell latitude d630 akku will need more time to develop. "

It should be noted that, as expected, this Sony vgp-bps13 is by no means new. In fact, this Apple patent dating from 2008 reveals that the company Steve Jobs has been investigating it for a long time. The most curious and remarkable is that this paper raised the inclusion of the panels under the screen of their mobile devices. More recently, in addition, the patent number 20100013309 under the name "Power Management Circuitry and Solar Cells" reveals some more details about this technology: specifically describes the intentions of developing mobile devices (like iPods) that primarily operate without the need for electric current, is due to solar loading methods.

Honestly it sounds very attractive in many ways: it would have a positive impact on the environment, arouse environmental awareness in people and also that users would not be so dependent on chargers and electrical installations. However, on the other hand, I have little experience in operating devices and solar load, and very promising as it sounds, makes me wonder about their autonomy. In other words, will it have a solar energy Dell vostro 1000 akku the same life and same time every day? Note that there are still a couple of years ahead until this development see the hands of users, but I can say that the future technology will take this path.

Flat keyboard without keys

Another recently published patents in Cupertino reveals a flat keyboard, flat, without keys. The most novel feature is that you would only touch a keyboard, but its operation would depend on the detection of acoustic pulses generated by the user touches.

The patent entitled "Piezo-based acoustic and capacitive detection" was published in the Patent and Trademark Office of the United States last week, and seeks to solve a problem encountered in the input devices sensitive to touch.

"In general, areas or touch-sensitive devices may be less reliable in determining a command down compared to traditional mechanical keyboards. For example, some touch screens require less user touch the screen several times before they detect command. "

The solution provided by Apple is to attach a Apple a1175 with a piezoelectric sensor that can detect a "signature sound" from the input of the typing user. This signature would then be compared in a database to determine where it was generated, ie to identify which key was pressed. On the other hand, according to the patent, pressure switches and proximity devices could also be used to help ensure accurate detection.

The Cupertino-based company suggests that this technology would provide a flat device with few or no moving parts, thus achieving a more robust product. In addition, we propose that this invention could show the way to other peripherals, it that could be applied to other inventions as well as ibm thinkpad t40 akku.

Apple filed the patent in late January 2010. Besides being a product proposal for a "robust", as mentioned above, also gives me the feeling that can result in a cheaper and can be developed for specific purposes, for example, to create musical peripherals . What do you think? Imagine any of these patents applied or running on the devices they use every day?
