Title
(EN) Detachable camera block for a wearable device
Abstract
(EN)

A wearable device includes a strap, a base connected to the strap, a display detachably connected to the base, and a camera embedded within the display. The display is configured to rotate around a perimeter of the base to adjust the orientation of the camera with respect to the base. Rotating the display allows the camera to capture one or more fields-of-view at different positions with respect to the base. In some embodiments, the display includes two or more cameras having distinct lenses. In some embodiments, the lenses of the two or more cameras are macro lenses, prime telephoto lenses, optical zoom lenses, or normal lenses. In some embodiments, the wearable device includes a second alternative display having one or more embedded second cameras. The second display is configured to detachably couple to the base after detaching the first display.
