Motorola has already filed for patents on both wrist-worn gadgets and flexible displays. Today, we're seeing what happens when the company merges the two technologies. A newly published patent application has revealed a Motorola concept for a smartwatch-like device where both the screen and the shell underneath can flex in tandem. Much like a metal watch band, the chassis would be made of links; grips on each link would bend the display. It's a simple idea, although we're not expecting a product out of it any time soon -- the company will need flexible circuits before any bendy wearables can reach its roadmap.
