  • Patent number: 10281794
    Abstract: The invention relates to a device comprising a multilayered structure with a first portion and a second portion wherein the first portion is conceived to be rolled about a first roller, said device comprising a second roller for receiving the second portion for at least partially counteracting the effects of mechanical strain induced in the multilayered structure upon said rolling. The first roller is rotated in a first direction, whereby the second roller is rotated in a second direction. Preferably, the diameters of the first roller and the second roller are equal. Alternatively, the edge portions A, B of the multilayer structure are suitably interconnected by stoppers for preventing creeping.

  • 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.
