I know that it is likely intended for use on smaller devices like remotes, but the new Apple Squeeze Metal Patent could turn the entire TV into a giant user interface ...

Apple Squeeze Metal Patent

Now, to just figure out what to use it for besides one big power button ... would make for a sleek looking all metal remote for Apple's upcoming 4k tv cool.gif

How is that any different than the capacitance touch controls they have now? Sounds like the same thing.

That's it? I don't see how the metal flexing would really provide a benefit ...

Well, you will be able to use your iWatch as a universal remote as Apple basically confirmed they are working on it at D11 this week /
