PATENTLY APPLE - Nov 18 - The US Patent Office published a new Microsoft patent application covering an invention that relates to using wearables in a new way to control other devices. The wearable would be able to control other smart devices such as a TV, a smartphone or HMD. The wearable, being a small form factor, can't use a touch display for controls and incorporates a microphone. Users can scratch the arm of their family room leather chair and that unique sound wave would be able to control changing channels or audio of a TV, or advance a tune on your stereo and so forth.
