"He’s vowed never to take an invention to school again."

This is the true shame in all of it. First thing when he gets back to school he should do is start an engineering club. I'm sure after the settlement he'll be able to give a nice donation to the club to keep it going for a long time and really stick it to them.

If I understand patents correctly the supporting claims don't matter it's the parent claims. Break one part of the parent and the rest falls apart.

"a detection mechanism configured to alter the portable electronic device based on whether the removable portable electronic device is mounted on the frame"

That's easy... Mount the display in the headset. Push a on screen button launching VR mode. Device changes to VR mode. Take off the headset, touch the screen - since you won't be touching it while watching it, and device comes out of VR mode. It's not like you need to be that lazy to have it automatically start when put in.
