Thread Starter 
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.
