  • Patent number: 10852764
    Abstract: In one example in accordance with the present disclosure a hinge device is described. The device includes a first shaft to be coupled to a first body and a second shaft to be coupled to a second body. A first band of the device is coupled to the shafts and travels along a first path between the first shaft and the second shaft as the shafts rotate in opposite directions. A second band of the device is coupled to the shafts and travels along a second path between the first shaft and the second shaft as the shafts rotate in opposite directions.

  • Patent number: 10317951
    Abstract: Examples disclosed herein provide a hinge mechanism to couple housings of a computing device. As an example, the hinge mechanism includes a first guide rail fixed to a first housing of the computing device, a second guide rail fixed to a second housing of the computing device, and an intermediate guide rail to connect the first and second guide rails to each other. As an example, the hinge mechanism includes clamping brackets to hold the first, second, and immediate guide rails together and apply rotational friction to the hinge mechanism so that the first and second housings can be positioned at various angles with respect to each other.

  • Patent number: 10296056
    Abstract: Examples disclosed herein provide a hinge mechanism to pivotally connect housings of a computing device along an axis. As an example, the hinge mechanism includes a first guide rail fixed to a first housing of the computing device, a second guide rail fixed to a second housing of the computing device, and an intermediate guide rail to connect the first and second guide rails to each other. As an example, the hinge mechanism includes a rotation assembly linked to the first guide rail via a bell crank, wherein a rotational axis of the rotation assembly is offset from the axis, and the rotation assembly is to provide a level of resistance to a torque provided when opening or closing the first housing with respect to the second housing.

  • Patent number: 10296055
    Abstract: An example system for adjusting the center of mass of a computing device includes a base slidably coupled to a first portion of the computing device. The base repositions the first portion of the computing device relative to the base. A first hinge couples the first portion and a second portion, rotates the second portion relative to the first portion about an axis of rotation, and repositions the first portion of the computing device relative to the base.

  • Patent number: 9696765
    Abstract: In one example, a double-track guided hinge for an electronic device. The hinge includes a bent lever arm having an arm pin adjacent one end, an arm pivot, and a curved slot adjacent the other end, the curved slot extending towards the arm pivot. The hinge also includes an angled slot slidably engaged with the arm pin. The hinge further includes a rotatable connector block having a block pivot and a pin radially offset from the block pivot, the offset pin slidably engaged with the curved slot A carrier moveably attached to the lever arm at the arm pivot and to the connector block at the block pivot, is linearly moveable responsive to rotation of the pivot connector block.
