Title: FOLDABLE APPARATUS, FOLDABLE APPARATUS KITS AND METHODS OF CUSTOMIZING A FOLDABLE APPARATUS
Abstract:
A foldable apparatus comprises a first outer housing member and a second outer housing member pivotably mounted to the first outer housing member. In further examples, methods of customizing a foldable apparatus include selecting a predetermined minimum bend radius for a foldable substrate and changing a depth of at least one of a first cavity of the first outer housing and a second cavity of the second outer housing with a removable insert to achieve the predetermined minimum bend radius. In yet further examples, a foldable apparatus kit for assembling a foldable housing comprises at least three outer housing members with a selected two of the at least three outer housing members being removably pivotably mountable to one another. Different attributes of the foldable housing can be obtained depending on which two outer housing members are selected from the at least three outer housing members.
