The document mentions that this concept of intelligent clock is able to scan objects or areas around it and recognize its shape and then emanate a virtual interface on these surfaces, through small internal projectors .

According to the images included in the patent, the smartwatch could also project its interface on the arm or hand and even put virtual buttons, menus and keyboard on top. On the other hand, apparently it would also offer the possibility of deploying a virtual “desktop” on the wall and scanned drawings.
