Apple’s iMac has largely stopped its design for many years now, which means that it is tied for a redesign at some part in the immediate future, or at least that’s what we hope. Whether or not that will happen remains to be seen, but in the meantime, it looks like Apple has come up with a pretty crazy idea for a possible redesign.
According to a recently discovered patent by AppleInsider, it depicts a design for the iMac that Apple has cooked up that relies on a single membrane of glass. As you can see in the drawing above, it shows the iMac with its display housed in a curved make that ascent towards the user, with a small stand on the back to help keep it propped upright.
At the bottom of the make, there is a space where it looks like where the( potential virtual) keyboard could be housed, together with two spaces to the left and right of it, which we’re not sure if it could also double up as trackpads, generate a true-blue all-in-one desktop system where it would work right out of the box without customers having to attach peripherals to it.
It is a jolly outrageous blueprint mind and given that it is a patent, there’s actually no relate if Apple plans on originating it a reality. That said today, as much as we’d love to see Apple tackle a redesign of the iMac, the fact that the iMac Pro propelled not too long suggests that we could still have to wait quite a bit.
