Title: COMBINATION COMPUTING DEVICE AND GAME CONTROLLER WITH FLEXIBLE BRIDGE SECTION
Abstract:
A combination computing device, input device, structural bridge, and a communication link is provided. The computing device, with its length greater than its width, provides a plurality of sides, display screen, and a back. The input device electronically communicates with the computing device. The input device provides a pair of control modules which adaptively confine the width of the computing device. The structural bridge, masks a mid-portion of the back of the computing device, secures the pair of control modules to each other, and adaptively accommodates the length of the computing device. A first of the pair of control modules includes at least a tensioning mechanism secured to the structural bridge. The tensioning mechanism accommodates the length of the computing device. The communication link facilitates communication between the control modules, the computing device, and a second display, which is mechanically disassociated from electronic display.
