Apple Inc. (AAPL)’s Next Disruptive Move

If Apple uses OLED technology to create a very thin, light TV, it could change the way we look at TVs, much as Apple changed the way we look at computers after it introduced the iPad. The computer is no longer a stationary device, but rather one that’s free to move about the house.

An iTV that allows app development and AirPlay would be an entirely new world for developers to design in, creating an even stronger ecosystem for Apple. An OLED may even bring about the possibility of a flexible screen to go along with lightweight and portability. OLED has been the future of TV for more than a decade, and Apple should be using this technology in an iTV.

3-D for everyone
Hollywood has used 3-D special effects for years, but it’s time to bring 3-D to consumers in a serious way. We know the technology exists to create 3-D holographic images because Tupac did a concert last year — 16 years after he died — by using holographic technology. Apple should be working on mastering this technology for use on the iPad or iTV.

Imagine Apple Maps with real 3-D technology. Exploring cities on your iPad would be an immersive experience that might make people actually want to use it.

If we combine 3-D with and OLED iTV on a large screen, the possibilities are endless. App developers could enter a whole new world of possibilities by entering three dimensions, and Apple should lead the way. The technology is there; someone just has to perfect it.

Apple’s next disruptive move
No one outside Apple’s walls really knows what Apple has up its sleeve, but I think these three ideas are both feasible for Apple to make and attractive to consumers. Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) and Samsung are breathing down Apple’s neck in smartphones and tablets, so it’s time to separate from the field with something new. Any of these products will do that.

Time will tell if Apple feels the same way.
