2. Certain claims were found unsearchable
3. Unity of invention is lacking
This International Searching Authority found multiple inventions in this international application, as follows:
1. claims: 1-10, 13-15, 18-20
A dynamically adjustable display system, comprising: a flexible display that is capable of reversibly bending along one or more bending axes;an adjustable support on which the flexible display is mounted, wherein the adjustable support is configured to selectively bend the flexible display;a plurality of photodetectors positioned about a perimeter of the flexible display for detecting ambient light; anda control unit in communication with the adjustable support and the plurality of photodetectors, wherein the control unit causes the adjustable support to bend the flexible display in response to ambient light detected at the plurality of photodetectors, wherein the flexible display comprises a cold-bent glass substrate.
2. claims: 11, 12, 17
A dynamically adjustable display system, comprising:a flexible display that is capable of reversibly bending along one or more bending axes;an adjustable support on which the flexible display is mounted, wherein the adjustable support is configured to selectively bend the flexible display;a plurality of photodetectors positioned about a perimeter of the flexible display for detecting ambient light; anda control unit in communication with the adjustable support and the plurality of photodetectors, wherein the control unit causes the adjustable support to bend the flexible display in response to ambient light detected at the plurality of photodetectors, further comprising one or more location sensors configured to detect a location of a user, wherein the control unit further causes the adjustable support to adjust the flexible display based on the location of the user.
3. claim: 16
A method for dynamically adjusting a flexible display, the method comprising: detecting an intensity of ambient light at each of a plurality of photodetectors, wherein the plurality of photodetectors are positioned about a perimeter of a flexible display; and bending the flexible display based upon the intensity of ambient light detected at the plurality of photodetectors so as to reduce the intensity of ambient light detected by at least one of the plurality of photodetectors, further comprising tilting the flexible display based upon the intensity of ambient light detected at the plurality of photodetectors so as to reduce the intensity of ambient light detected by at least one of the plurality of photodetectors.
1.
As all required additional search fees were timely paid by the applicant, this international search report covers all searchable claims.
2.
As all searchable claims could be searched without effort justifying additional fees, this Authority did not invite payment of additional fees.
