Showed

The patent shows a special device on hinges with magnets. It will have three positions (fully open, open 180 degrees and closed). Tiny magnets will hold the apparatus in the desired user position, and when the device will spread out, they will not protrude above the surface. We also know that each camera will display their menu with different functions and appearance. In addition, the novelty should get a full Windows 10.


What is known

In 2009, Microsoft released a concept video that showed the gadgets of the future. Among them were such an apparatus, which jackknifed and different modes provide the user with its functionality. Perhaps the creators of the patent were inspired by this movie or the patent is directly connected with the device on video and made on its basis.
