Abstract

A case for holding an electronic device includes a body having a void for holding the electronic device. The void approximately replicates the shape of the electronic device such that a face of the electronic device is not substantially surrounded by the body. The body has tabs configured to contact a portion of the face of the electronic device and hold the electronic device in the void such that it is held in place. The body has a flexible body portion, the flexible body portion defined by a cut in the body, dividing the body into a hinge portion and a main body. The hinge portion is configured to be flexed away from the main body to provide a direction that the electronic device is slidably removed.

LIGHTED FLYING DISC

Abstract

A soft, flexible, illuminating flying disk toy may be used for recreation by adults and children and as a fetch toy for animals. The disk is designed as an improvement to existing soft, flexible flying disks by incorporating an illuminated outer edge, typically battery powered. This illuminated outer edge, while sewn into a durable, lightweight, tear resistant translucent material, will also provide the semi-rigid support needed to create and maintain stable flight. The illuminated outer edge which is sewn into the translucent durable material is then sewn onto a slightly over-sized central circular disk shaped section of the same or similar material which, when thrown, creates an aerodynamic lift providing stable flight. By incorporating the illuminated outer edge into a soft flying disk, visibility and additional safety are provided when using the disk in dimming light conditions and during the dark of night.
