7 curious patents that could become reality – see what the major manufacturers might be working on
If you are curious to know what the major mobile manufacturers might have in tow for us, look no further than the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The companies usually file a number of patent applications each week and the USPTO is the institution that has to grant them these patents. 

If you delve a little deeper, you might easily uncover some rather interesting patents and blueprints, which represent avant-garde technologies, ideas, and concepts. Still, a big portion of these will forever remain only reference designs, but there are some that will actually see the light of day and enter mass production.

Indeed, taking a peek at the patent applications and the conceptual blueprints might actually reveal a lot of things. You might, for example, notice a reference design for the exterior of an upcoming smartphone, take a glimpse at its ingenious and unorthodox user interface, or even spot a smart gadget that you might wear on your head some day.

In this line of thought, our curiosity made us take a sneak peek at some of the patent applications, recently filed with the USPTO. We managed to detect some rather interesting ones and although we can't cover all of them for you, we will try to distunguish some of the more compelling patents in the gallery below.
