Title (EN) PROTECTIVE CUSHION COVER FOR AN ELECTRONIC DEVICE
(FR) CAPOT D'AMORTISSEMENT PROTECTEUR POUR UN DISPOSITIF ÉLECTRONIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) Disclosed is a protective cover 400 for an electronic device that is made from an elastomeric material that simultaneously provides cushioning that would otherwise be provided by a softer, thicker material, while utilizing a single, denser material that provides a slim profile and has sufficient density to conform well to the electronic device and prevent the transmission of impacts with hard surfaces directly to the electronic device. Although a denser material is used for the protective cover, recesses 402, 404, 406, 408 are formed in thicker portions 504 at impact points that create compressible ribs 418. The ribs provide softer, cushioned portions of the cover in the impact areas 118, which are capable of absorbing the shock and energy of impacts. Other protective covers have a uniform thickness.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un capot protecteur 400 pour un dispositif électronique, lequel capot est réalisé en un matériau élastomère qui assure simultanément un amortissement qui serait, sinon, produit par un matériau plus mou et plus épais, tout en utilisant un matériau unique plus dense qui produit un profil mince, et qui a une densité suffisante pour bien se conformer au dispositif électronique et empêcher la transmission d'impacts avec des surfaces dures directement au dispositif électronique. Bien qu'un matériau plus dense soit utilisé pour le capot protecteur, des cavités 402, 404, 406, 48 sont formées dans des parties plus épaisses 504 en des points d'impact qui créent des nervures compressibles 418. Les nervures procurent des parties amorties plus molles du capot dans les zones d'impact 118, celles-ci étant aptes à absorber le choc et l'énergie d'impacts. D'autres capots protecteurs ont une épaisseur uniforme.
