Abstract
(EN)
A smartphone case for holding and protecting a smartphone, while also having various features for controlling an app, such as a video game running on the smartphone. The smartphone case includes a case body having a case back, and a case side wall that extends circumferentially around the case back, including four corners. The case side wall also extends above and below a smartphone held by the case, thereby forming a front rim and a back rim. The case side wail also includes corner connectors configured to connect with a swappable input control module. The case back also includes dedicated controls, and at least one recess for storing a swappable control module while not in use. A long side of the case side wall includes a left bumper and a right bumper. An app provides a GUI for assigning the dedicated and swappable controls for an app to be controlled.

L'invention concerne un boîtier de téléphone intelligent destiné à contenir et à protéger un téléphone intelligent, tout en comportant également diverses caractéristiques permettant de commander une application, telle qu'un jeu vidéo s'exécutant sur le téléphone intelligent. Le boîtier de téléphone intelligent comprend un corps de boîtier comportant un dos de boîtier, et une paroi latérale de boîtier qui s'étend de manière circonférentielle autour du dos de boîtier, comprenant quatre angles. La paroi latérale de boîtier s'étend également au-dessus et au-dessous d'un téléphone intelligent maintenu par le boîtier, formant ainsi un rebord avant et un bord arrière. La paroi latérale de boîtier comprend également des connecteurs d'angle configurés pour se connecter à un module de commande d'entrée échangeable. Le dos de boîtier comprend également des commandes dédiées, et au moins un évidement pour stocker un module de commande échangeable lorsqu'il n'est pas utilisé. Un côté long de la paroi latérale de boîtier comprend un pare-chocs gauche et un pare-chocs droit. Une application fournit une interface utilisateur graphique (GUI) pour attribuer les commandes dédiées et échangeables destinées à une application à commander.
