Title: COMBINATION COMPUTING DEVICE AND GAME CONTROLLER WITH FLEXIBLE BRIDGE SECTION
Abstract:
A device directed to a combination computing and input device. The computing device (102) providing a plurality of sides, each of the plurality of sides are disposed between an electronic display screen (110) and a back (112) of the computing device (102). The input device (114) communicates with the computing device (102) and provides a pair of control modules (120, 122) adjacent to and confining the computing device (102) on at least two opposing sides (104, 108) of the computing device (102). The input device (114) further provides a structural bridge (258) securing the pair of control modules (252) one to the other. The structural bridge (258) adaptively and snugly accommodate the length (412) of the computing device (102). A first of the pair of control modules (120, 122) features a retention mechanism (424) communicating with the structural bridge (258). The retention mechanism (424) adaptively secures the structural bridge (258) such that the pair of control modules (120, 122) snugly accommodate the length (412) of the computing device (102).
