Method and System for Providing Expandable Display Area for a Smartwatch.

Disclosed is a method and system for providing expandable display area for a smartwatch.

In accordance with the system, a display area of smartwatch is made of multiple overlaying flexible display strips attached on a stretchable rubber base. In an embodiment, air pressure is applied from a bottom surface of the stretchable rubber base to expand the display area from a flat display surface to semi hemisphere display surface. Dimension of semi hemisphere depends on an amount of applied air pressure. Accordingly, display surface area of a smartwatch can be changed based on amount of applied pressure. Similarly, at any point of time, the display area can be made flat based on the requirement.

Figure 1 illustrates a structure of expandable display area for a smartwatch.

Figure 1

As illustrated, flexible display surfaces strips are attached on a stretchable rubber base, these display strips are overlapping with each other. Sensor installed in the display layers identify overlapping area and accordingly identify exposed display area to air. The content gets displayed in the exposed display area.

Once air pressure is applied then the rubber base gets expanded, and accordingly the overlapping area among the flexible display strips gets reduced. Accordingly, the effective display area is increased. In this case the multi-display strips takes shape of the stretchable rubber base expansion profile. The upper layer of the flexible display strips have a stretchable transparent protective layer. Along with the expansion of the stretchable rubber base...
