Abstract

Disclosed is a method of design which involves multiple viewing screens where subsequent viewing screen(s) can be stored (hidden) or exposed (shown). Figure 1 Fig. 1 shows a laptop with the second screen in the "closed" position. Fig. 2 shows how a user can pull on the top of the screen casing to reveal and activate the second screen. Once the second screen is pulled to the top, it turns on and software will re-flow the display to utilize the extra height. 1
