Laptop shade for outdoor typing


Nevermind that the rest of your body is exposed to the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays, the important thing here is that you're able to see what's on your laptop screen. This patented Comp shade may look ridiculous, but it forms a 9" deep privacy screen and "viewing tunnel" that reduces glare and makes 10" to 17" displays more viewable in direct sunlight.

It attaches to laptop lids and collapses flat to just 3/8" high, too, so it should easily fit into your current computer case. Available now for about $33.


You could also just sit under a big shady tree for free.

"You could also just sit under a big shady tree for free."

You could also just use an abacus instead of a computer. Some of us don't have big shady trees lying around and cactus don't provide much shade ;)

good innovation, but i donno why i will sit under open sun with my laptop.

This idea is great. I often hate sitting in my computer room to work on new web pages when it is so nice in the garden. Where can I get one of these?


a bit of cleverness and some cardboard is also free then you can choose what tree to sit under.
