  • Patent number: 10073503
    Abstract: A portable electronic device including a first body, a second body, a cam, and a linking rod is provided. The first body has a reaming hole. The second body has a rotating shaft movably coupled to the reaming hole in pivoting and penetrating manner. The cam is assembled to a side surface of the rotating shaft to rotate along with the rotating shaft. The linking rod has a first end and a second end opposite to each other. The first end is pivoted to the cam, and the second end is pivoted to the first body. When the second body is pivoted relative to the first body via the rotating shaft, the cam rotates along with the rotating shaft and the linking rod drives the cam and the rotating shaft to move along the reaming hole so as to move the second body towards or away from the first body.
