Picture this. You’re on a business trip, and you want to play one of the big new games on your laptop (MW3 or Skyrim anyone?). The problem is, your gaming laptop overheats very easily when running games. Also, playing games cramps your back on airplanes. This is where the Prop comes in. The prop is an affordable and portable laptop stand. Emphasis on portable.
I’ve been primarily using The Prop at school, for obvious reasons. I have to say, using the Prop made it easier to type, and was easier on my back. It also kept my fan noise to a minimum, which is very important during lectures. At home, The Prop did an awesome job of elevating my laptop, which keeps my desk uncluttered and neat. The best part about this whole experience, is that I’m not even using the final product, but a mere wood prototype.
The final production model of The Prop will be made out of recycled materials, and hard plastic. It weighs just an ounce, which is virtually unknown in the realm of laptop stands. It can hold any laptop with a 13-17 inch screen size.
Like many creative projects, The Prop is being funded on Kickstarter. When Justin Brouillette & Nicholas Pajerski reach the $18,000 goal they’ve set, The Prop will go into production. By funding The Prop on their Kickstarter page, you guarantee yourself a brand-spanking new Prop (which comes in hard recycled-plastic). It’s not often you see a project as creative as this, so back it while you can.
