Apple obtains steering wheel-mounted remote patent


USA: According to PatentlyApple (a website that tracks Apple patents) Apple has filed its steering wheel-mounted remote drawings of with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for a device that looks very similar to the click wheel that became synonymous with the iPod media player in the early days of this century.

The click wheel appears to act as a remote for iPhones and iPods (and perhaps other devices), using Bluetooth or another pairing technology. Easily attachable to a vehicle steering wheel, it allows users to control their devices without taking their eyes off the road.
