IBM has patented a digital bangle. The entire surface of the bangle is a display surface, which will make it look very cool.
The position sensors in the bangle will provide positioning data that describe, in real time, a physical 3D orientation of the bangle relative to a field of vision of a wearer.
Based on the field of vision of the wearer, an image is displayed on the present viewable area of the bangle.
