Wearable device with input and output structures

An electronic device includes a display and a band configured to be worn on the head of a user. The band defines a display end to which the display is affixed and extends from the display end to a free end. The band is adjustable such that it can be configured by a user to contact the head of the user at a first location near a temple, a second location along a portion of the user's ear adjacent the temple, and at a third location along a rear portion of the head of the user. The display end is positionable away from the head such that the display element is suspended over an eye adjacent the temple. The band is further configured to maintain the configuration. The device also includes image generating means within the band for generating an image presentable to the user on the display.

Wave-shaped temple insert

An example embodiment includes eyewear. The eyewear includes a lens, a brow piece, and two temple assemblies. The brow piece is configured to position the lens in front of the eyes of a user during use. The two temple assemblies are coupled to the brow piece by two hinges. Each of the temple assemblies are configured to extend along a side of a head of the user during use. Each of the temple assemblies includes a temple substrate and a wave-shaped insert. The wave-shape insert includes at least one horizontal span and at least one vertical portion. The horizontal span is configured to dictate the deflection of a first portion of the temple substrate and enable rotation of the first portion of the temple substrate about the horizontal span. The vertical portion is configured to dictate a torsional stiffness of a second portion of the temple assembly.

Wearable display input system

Embodiments that relate to an input system for a wearable display device are disclosed. For example, in one disclosed embodiment the wearable display device comprises at least one temple arm extending from a display bridge of the device. A first touch-sensitive strip extends along a first axis on a top side of the arm. A second touch-sensitive strip extends parallel to the first touch-sensitive strip on a bottom side of the arm opposite to the top side. At least a portion of the first touch-sensitive strip and a portion of the second touch-sensitive strip overlap as viewed from a second axis. Both the first and second touch-sensitive strips are configured to generate linear contact input signals from one or more user digits sliding along the first axis, with the linear contact input signals provided to a user interface program.

Temple bar with ball and socket hinge and method of making same

A novel hinge assembly for eyeglasses is provided wherein a first structural member for the hinge structure is formed in a first molding step and a second structural member of the hinge structure is formed directly over a portion of the first structural member in a second molding step. The present invention utilizes in-mold-assembly techniques to reduce the assembly steps required to form such a hinge assembly while further resulting in a hinge assembly that has increased adjustability and utility. Specifically, the overmolded components form a ball and socket type joint allowing a large degree of lateral rotation in one direction and a limited amount of freedom in a second direction. This hinge allows the temple portion of the eyeglasses to be folded against the brow bar and the inclination angle between the temples and the brow bar to be adjusted.
