  • Patent number: 11874713
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a first body including a first part and a second part hinged to each other, a second body, and a hinge structure hinged between an edge of the second body and the second part. The first part has a recess. When the second body is unfolded relative to the first body from a folded state to a first unfolded state, the hinge structure pushes against the first part to rotate the first part relative to the second part. When the second body is continuously unfolded relative to the first body from the first unfolded state to a second unfolded state, the edge of the second body pushes against the first part, so that the first part continues to rotate relative to the second part. When the second body is in the folded state, the hinge structure is at least partially accommodated in the recess.

  • Publication number: 20230376090
    Abstract: An electronic device with movable foot pad, including a body and a foot pad module, is provided. The body has a bottom surface. The foot pad module includes a first foot pad, at least one second foot pad, and at least one rotating shaft connecting the first and second foot pads. The second foot pad is rotated relative to the first foot pad by the rotating shaft to switch the foot pad module between first and second states. An axial direction of the rotating shaft is inclined relative to the bottom surface. In the first state, the body is supported on the platform by the first and second foot pads. In the second state, the second foot pad is rotated 180 degrees relative to the first foot pad in the axial direction and protrudes from the first foot pad to support the body on the platform by the second foot pad.

  • Patent number: 10620671
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a first component, a second component, a dual axis module, and a third component. The second component is flipably disposed at the first component. The dual axis module has a first shaft and a second shaft. The second component is pivoted to the second shaft. The third component is pivoted to the first shaft. The electronic device is switched between a first state, a second state, a third state, and a fourth state. During the switching of the first state to the second state, the first shaft is rotatable relative to the first component and the second shaft is non-rotatable. During the switching of the second state to the third state, the first shaft is non-rotatable and the second shaft is rotatable relative to the first component. During the switching of the third state to the fourth state, the first shaft is rotatable relative to the first component and the second shaft is non-rotatable.

  • Patent number: 10466750
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a first body, a second body, a function module and a driving module. The second body is pivoted to the first body. The function module is pivoted to the first body and located between the first body and the second body. The driving module is at least disposed at the first body and the function module. When the first body is closed to the second body, the function module is located at an original position relative to the second body, and the function module is exposed from the first body. When the first body is rotated in a first clock direction to a first angle relative to the second body, the function module is driven by the driving module so as to rotate in a second clock direction to a second angle relative to the second body, and the first angle is greater than the second angle.
