STAF Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture) and VAIO Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Azumino City, Nagano Prefecture) have developed and commercialized unique hinges that can be opened smoothly with one hand, by each company's respective strengths in hinge development and notebook PC development.

We have developed a "one-handed open hinge" to solve this difficulty in use.
