  • Patent number: 9902417
    Abstract: A foldable stroller (1, 41) is provided with at least one pushrod (2, 3) being pivotable about a first pivot axis (9, 10). The folding mechanism is further provided with a number of rods, comprising a first rod (19, 20) being pivotable about a second pivot axis (17, 18). The first rod and the pushrod are provided with cooperating connecting elements (52, 56) being connectable to each other by pivoting the pushrod about the first pivot axis to an erect position of the pushrod, in which position the connecting elements are lockable to each other by locking means (57). When the locking means are unlocked and the connecting elements are still connected to each other, the connecting means prevent the first rod to pivot about the second pivot axis.

  • Patent number: 9235239
    Abstract: A display system includes a continuous flexible display and two main display supports being hingeable with respect to each other between a closed storage position and a planar configuration for fixing the flexible display in an open position. At least one additional display support supports a segment of the flexible display located between the said respective portions of the flexible display in the open position. This additional display support is movable with respect to the display segment between a non-operational position and a support position when the two main display supports are moved between the storage position and the planar position, such that in the open position substantially the whole surface of the display is supported by the respective display supports.

  • Patent number: 9086850
    Abstract: A display system includes a continuous flexible display, two main display supports each structurally configured to support a respective portion of the flexible display, a segment of the flexible display being located between the said respective display portions. The two main display supports are hingeable between a closed configuration for fixing the flexible display in a storage position and an open configuration for fixing the flexible display in an open position. In the storage position between the main display supports there is a free space enabling a partial curvature of said display segment without conflicting with the respective main display support. At least one additional display support is configured to support said segment of the flexible display in the storage position and facilitates the curvature of the display segment with a predefined radius which is larger than the critical radius Rcrit for the flexible display.

  • Publication number: 20150177895
    Abstract: An electronic device having a first part, a second part, and a touch sensitive panel disposed on the second part has an opened and a closed state, and the touch sensitive panel is covered by the first part in the closed state. The electronic device includes a sensor circuit, a touch simulation facility and a comparator. The sensor circuit is for generating a touch signal indicative for a position where a touch of the touch sensitive panel is detected. The touch simulation facility is for evoking a touch signal at a position of the touch sensitive panel, and includes a touch simulation element which in the closed state of the electronic device is arranged opposite the touch sensitive panel.

  • Patent number: 8971031
    Abstract: A display system includes a continuous flexible display, and two main display supports, hingeable with respect to each other and each structurally configured to support a respective portion of the flexible display. The two main display supports are rotatable in opposite directions connected to each other by a respective hinge of a hinge mechanism. The main display supports are rotatable between a configuration for fixing the flexible display in a closed storage position and a planar configuration for fixing the flexible display in an open position. The two main display supports are coupled with each other by a movement synchronizing coupling enabling during movement between the closed and open position a mutual substantially synchronized rotating of the main display supports at substantially equal but opposite angles.

  • Patent number: 8717280
    Abstract: A lookup table provides voltage waveforms for transitions between a plurality of discrete pixel states forming a set that can be ordered in consecutive states according to a reflectivity of the pixel. An image controller repeatedly executes, in a consecutive drive phase, the steps of retrieving an initial state and update state, matching, when the initial and update states are different, in the ordered set of pixel states of the lookup table, a consecutive state and a corresponding consecutive waveform, the consecutive state forming a path, according to the consecutive drive phase, from the initial state to the update state in the set of pixel states, storing the consecutive state in the memory as new initial state; and controlling a voltage driver to drive the pixel from the initial state to the consecutive state using said consecutive waveform.
