Laptop with Hinged Keyboard
To understand what’s going on in this patent, you’ve got to envision yourself holding this device by grasping the folding keyboard like a book - and you’ve got to know that some of the keys are on the backside of the two panels, which helps to explain why there aren’t many on the front. I can’t recall seeing another gizmo design involving keys which you can’t see in use. Instinctive touch-typing would have been a must.
