  • Publication number: 20210272759
    Abstract: A button is disclosed for use with an image capture device in an underwater environment. The button includes a movable plunger configured to cause actuation of the image capture device, and upper and lower components collectively defining an internal cavity that is configured to receive the plunger. The upper and lower components are configured and connected such that actuation of the image capture device is prevented until a threshold pressure is applied to the upper component that is greater than external water pressure applied in the underwater environment. The upper component includes at least one opening that is configured to allow water to enter the internal cavity to modify an internal pressure within the internal cavity so as to reduce the threshold pressure required to actuate the image capture device in the underwater environment.

  • Publication number: 20210173288
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a body, electronic components contained in the body, and two finger members. The two finger members movable relative to the body between an extended state and a collapsed state. In the extended state, the two finger members extend outward from the body for receipt by a mount of an external support. In the collapsed state, the two finger members are collapsed toward the body. In the extended state, the two finger members may extend parallel with each other for receipt in parallel slots of the mount of the external support.

  • Publication number: 20210112182
    Abstract: An image capture device includes electronic components and a body. The electronic components include an image sensor and a processing apparatus. The body defines an internal compartment containing the electronic components. The body includes a rear housing and a chassis. The rear housing extends around a top side, a right side, a bottom side, and a left side of the body. The chassis includes an upright portion and a lateral portion extending rearward from the upright portion. The rear housing and the chassis are coupled to each other to cooperatively form the internal compartment with the upright portion of the chassis being coupled to a front end of the rear housing and the lateral portion being positioned outside of and below the internal compartment.

  • Patent number: 9996108
    Abstract: An information handling system includes a flexible display screen, first and second display platforms, and a bi-stable hinge. The flexible display screen is movably mounted to the first and second display platforms. The bi-stable hinge is mounted to the first and second display platforms and couples the first display platform to the second display platform. The bi-stable hinge locks the first and second display platforms in an open position and snap closes the first and second display platforms from the open position to a closed position in response to the bi-stable hinge being stressed in a first direction.

  • Patent number: 9681565
    Abstract: Systems, processes, and manufactures are provided that employ a casing associated with an electrical component to provide some, most, substantially all or all electrical insulative protection necessary for the electrical component. This casing may be further employed with potting or other materials to supplement and add additional or different protections for the component. These additional protections can include additional insulative resistance, thermal protection, moisture protection and other buffers to and from the environment.
