The US Patent Office published a new patent application from Apple - combining the Magic Mouse touch interface with a flexible OLED or another specialized display surface made of collimated optical glass that contains a unique magnifying capability.

The idea is that the display can be used for all sorts of application - for example displaying a calculator when in use with Apple's Numbers application or magnifying text when using Apple's Pages application. Apple wants to use a flexible display because the mouse's surface is non-planar.
