In addition to the game control element, the protective case may include a receptacle and a base, which may be part of the receptacle or operatively associated with the receptacle. The receptacle is configured to receive or otherwise carry the portable electronic device, and may be configured to protect the portable electronic device. The receptacle may be configured to move relative to the base in a manner that enables a user to select an orientation of a display of the portable electronic device relative to the at least one game control element. The at least one game control element may be moved between a storage position, where it may appear to be an integral part of the case, and a gaming position where it is accessible from a location laterally beyond the receptacle and any portable electronic device held by the receptacle. A gaming system may include a case and a portable electronic device. A gaming method may include use of the case to play a game on a portable electronic device.||06-26-2014|

|20130184845||ON-DEMAND PRODUCTION OF ELECTRONIC DEVICE ACCESSORIES - An on-demand production system for accessories for use with electronic devices is configured to generate digital templates defining the design of the accessories and provide the digital templates to retail or other locations. The retail or other locations may receive access to the digital templates automatically and/or electronically within a week, a day, or even minutes, of the digital template being created. When a customer requests an accessory, the digital template may be accessed. Using an electronic production machine and a supply of stock material, the accessory can be cut, formed, printed, or otherwise produced based on instructions or designs of the digital template. The electronic production machine may automatically read the digital template to automate the production at a retail location. The electronic production machine may produce the accessory on-demand, and production of the accessory may be completed within two hours, or potentially within ten minutes, of a request.||07-18-2013|
