  • Patent number: 11137795
    Abstract: At least one touch sensitive zone detects user touch on or near a display. The touch sensitive zone triggers one or more electrical brake components that control friction of axial rotation about one or more display arm pivot points. At least one display arm pivot point is non-pivotally attached to at least one arm brake component, and at least one axial brake component is held such that it will not rotate about the axial movement of the display arm. At least one of the brake components will require electrical power to activate. At least one electric circuit is used to control power to the brake component. When the brake component is de-energized the display arm can pivot with reduced torsional resistance. When the brake component is energized it creates friction, thus adding torsional resistance to the display arm pivot point.
