  • Patent number: 10606328
    Abstract: An accessory is selectively coupled in a first position or a second position to a portable electronic device. The accessory includes a touch unit and a heat dissipation unit. The touch unit is configured to be touched by a user to apply a contact force. An area of the touch unit to be touched by the user is defined as a contact point. When the accessory is in the first position, the touch unit detects a location of the contact point and outputs a control signal to the portable electronic device. The heat dissipation unit comes in contact with a heat source of the portable electronic device when the accessory is in the second position.

  • Patent number: 7824078
    Abstract: A cover of an electronic device has a body inside and is penetrable by light yield from an illumination device. The body has an inner surface having a region impenetrable by light as a light-blocking region and the remaining region penetrable by light as a light-passing region. The body further has an outer surface having a region impenetrable by light as another light-blocking region and the remaining region penetrable by light as another light-passing region. The light-blocking region of the outer surface correspond to the light-passing region of the inner surface in shape, but in a size that is smaller, so that when light pass through the body, light can give an effect that the shape of the light-blocking region looks three-dimensional.
