Title

Abstract
(EN) The description relates to hinge devices. One example relates to a device that has a first portion and a second portion. The device can include a hinge assembly secured to the first portion and the second portion and a flexible display secured to the first portion and the second portion. The device can include a biasing element that biases the first portion away from the hinge assembly. The device can further include a cord that extends along a pathway between the first portion and the hinge assembly. A length of the pathway can change as the first and second portions are rotated around the hinge assembly, such that at a first orientation the biasing element biases the first portion away from the hinge assembly and at a second orientation, the cord overcomes the bias and pulls the first portion toward the hinge assembly.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des dispositifs à charnière. Un exemple concerne un dispositif qui a une première partie et une seconde partie. Le dispositif peut comprendre un ensemble charnière fixé à la première partie et à la seconde partie, et un dispositif d'affichage souple fixé à la première partie et à la seconde partie. Le dispositif peut comprendre un élément de sollicitation qui sollicite la première partie à l'opposé de l'ensemble charnière. Le dispositif peut en outre comprendre un cordon qui s'étend le long d'un chemin entre la première partie et l'ensemble charnière. Une longueur du chemin peut changer au fur et à mesure que les première et seconde parties sont tournées autour de l'ensemble charnière, de telle sorte que, dans une première orientation, l'élément de sollicitation sollicite la première partie à l'opposé de l'ensemble charnière et, dans une seconde orientation, le cordon surmonte la sollicitation et tire la première partie vers l'ensemble charnière.
