Microsoft has patented yet another design for a dual-display device. The latest patent is about “multi-display systems” which could be a traditional desktop, notebook or tablet computers, hand-held personal digital assistants (PDAs). It appears that the patent has nothing to do with the long-rumored Andromeda dual-screen device as there’s no mention of the hinge in the patent application. First discovered by us, the patent titled “MULTI-DISPLAY SYSTEM” was published by the United States Patent and Trademark Office on August 9, 2018, and it was filed by Microsoft in February 2017. The patent basically explains the techniques that would correct misalignment issues in a multi-display system by identifying a misalignment between a plurality of displays in the multi-display device. “As computer systems have increased in power and capacity that allow for multiple applications to run concurrently, it has become commonplace for computer systems to include more than one display device or monitor. Systems with multiple displays (or “multi-display systems”), however, are not limited to traditional desktop systems. Instead, multi-display systems can be implemented in a variety of systems, including notebook or tablet computers, hand-held personal digital assistants (PDAs), multiscreen television systems, etc. Even further, many multi-display systems are implemented without being connected to a computer system,” Microsoft writes in the background section of the patent.
