  • Patent number: 10209745
    Abstract: An input device is described. The input device may include at least four key caps of a keyset and a keyboard cover surrounding the at least four key caps. Each key cap of the at least four key caps may be separated by at least one gap. The at least one gap may be between 0.075 mm and 0.525 mm. A method of manufacturing an input device is described. The method may include measuring at least four keycaps in a keyset. Each key cap of the at least four key caps may be separated on a side from a keyboard cover by a gap. The method may include cutting a substrate to fit between the at least four keycaps in the keyset such that the gap of each of the at least four keys is between 0.075 mm and 0.525 mm.

  • Patent number: 9451347
    Abstract: A base station and wireless headset where the headset is powered by a contained rechargeable battery and where the base station has a cradle with charging output contact points and the headset has a cradle-neck with charging input contact points. The base station in a surface region at the cradle includes a first surface mounted magnetic means displaying a first magnetic polarization and a second surface mounted magnetic means adjacent thereto and displaying a second magnetic polarization which is opposite the first magnetic polarization. The headset at a corresponding surface region at the cradle neck includes at least a further surface mounted magnetic means displaying only one of the first or the second polarization so as to ensure attraction forces and repulsion forces respectively between this further magnetic means and the two magnetic means at the bases station cradle.

  • Patent number: 8494204
    Abstract: An audio device includes a microphone, a sound canal allowing sound to pass from the surroundings to the microphone, a signal path from the microphone to a receiver, and a current source, such that sounds received at the microphone may be enhanced and presented at the ear level of the user. A protection screen is provided at the sound canal, and includes a first surface which faces the surroundings and a second surface which faces the sound canal, and defines a slit-formed opening between the first surface and the second surface. The curvature between the first surface and the slit-formed opening is smooth and gradual, and a sharp edge is located at the transition between the second surface and the slit-formed opening.
