  • Patent number: 9152172
    Abstract: A multi-positionable computer comprises a user interface portion and a processing portion. The user interface portion includes a path along its back surface. The user interface portion can include a slot for receiving computer peripherals. The processing portion includes a connecting member for slidably coupling the processing portion to the user interface portion, and a rolling surface for contacting an external surface. The processing portion allows the user interface portion to be oriented in one of a plurality of positions along the path. In one orientation of the user interface portion, content is automatically displayed to align with the orientation of the user interface portion. In some embodiments, a virtual keyboard is displayed when the user interface portion is oriented in a predetermined position. The processing portion includes sides adjacent to the rolling surface. In some embodiments, ports and/or connections are accessible from at least one of the sides.

  • Patent number: 8681113
    Abstract: An all-in-one computer system comprising: a base panel having a top surface and a bottom surface; and a screen panel coupled to and extending from the base panel, the screen panel comprising a screen. In some embodiments, a speaker system is coupled to the bottom surface of the base panel to provide a stand on which the base panel can be supported at an angle with respect to a resting surface, wherein the speaker system is configured to be adjusted along the bottom surface of the base panel to adjust the angle at which the base panel is supported. In some embodiments, a processing unit is communicatively coupled to the tilt sensor and to the screen, wherein the processing unit is configured to switch the screen between a touch mode and a non-touch mode based on the angle sensed by the tilt sensor.
