1. A support of a flexible component comprising:
a first substrate;
a second substrate;
a first rack;
a first pinion; and
a first hinge,
wherein the first rack is fixed to a corner of the second substrate,
wherein a center of the first pinion is fixed to a shaft of the first hinge,
wherein the shaft of the first hinge is fixed to one of hinge pieces of the first hinge,
wherein a first slotted hole and a first screw is provided in the other of the hinge pieces of the first hinge as a first slide function,
wherein the first hinge is provided over the first substrate and the second substrate so that teeth of the first rack and teeth of the first pinion engage with each other in a state where the first substrate is adjacent to a side of the corner of the second substrate to which the first rack is fixed,
wherein the second substrate and the other of the hinge pieces of the first hinge are fixed to each other so that the second substrate moves in a horizontal direction with the other of the hinge pieces of the first hinge while being overlapped with the other of the hinge pieces of the first hinge,
wherein the first substrate and the one of the hinge pieces of the first hinge are fixed to each other, and
wherein when the first substrate is moved, a rotational force of the first pinion is transmitted to the first rack, and thus the second substrate is moved in a horizontal direction while being overlapped with the other of the hinge pieces of the first hinge.
