  • Publication number: 20210286408
    Abstract: A foldable display including a first bracket, a second bracket, a rotating shaft connecting the first and the second brackets, at least one third bracket screwed to the rotating shaft, a fourth bracket movably coupled to the second and the third brackets, a flexible display disposed on the first and the fourth brackets, and a flexible supporting member disposed on the flexible display to be bent or flattened along with the flexible display is provided. The rotation of the rotating shaft drives the fourth bracket via the third bracket to move relative to the second bracket. The flexible supporting member is filled in a space composed of the fourth bracket, the second bracket, the first bracket, and the flexible display. A portable electronic device is also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20210240230
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a first body, a second body pivoted to the first body and a magnetic force mechanism. The first body includes a driving portion. The second body includes a casing, a flexible display and a supporting mechanism movably disposed in the casing. The flexible display is attached to the supporting mechanism. The magnetic force mechanism is disposed in the casing, wherein a portion of the magnetic force mechanism is exposed from the casing and abuts against the driving portion. The magnetic force mechanism is magnetically coupled to the supporting mechanism, wherein the magnetic force mechanism generates a magnetic attraction force or a magnetic repulsion force to the supporting mechanism by the second body rotating relative to the first body.

  • Patent number: 11023004
    Abstract: A head-mounted display includes a head belt, a frame, a first locking element, a display assembly and a second locking element. The frame is connected to the head belt. The first locking element is disposed at the peripheral of the frame and includes a first locking portion and an unlocking portion adjacent to each other. The second locking element is disposed at the peripheral of the display assembly and includes a second locking portion. The display assembly is fixed to the frame by means of the second locking portion of the second locking element being locked to the first locking portion of the first locking element. The second locking portion is aligned with the unlocking portion, and the locking relation between the second locking portion of the second locking element and the first locking portion of the first locking element is released by the operation of the unlocking portion.
