Portable Minimalist Ergonomic Laptop Stand ... In A Tube
More and more people change their desktop computers and go for portable notebooks everyday! Actually, with all the power available in modern laptops, I can barely imagine why would you go for a desktop … unless, of course, you work in those niches that require huge amounts of processing resources like video/audio editing, construction planning and architecture, 3D animation, gaming, etc …

Laptops are the perfect compromise – light enough to allow you to work from everywhere while packing just enough power to do your light office work, surf the net, check Facebook and Youtube or enjoy some light gaming. But there’s a hidden danger that comes packed in every laptop! And that danger is called “ergonomic working position” or better said “not ergonomic working position“!

And this is where gadgets like the 3-in-1 Laptop Stand Tube come into the game to help you enjoy the increased portability of a notebook while still keeping a healthy, ergonomic working posture. The Stand Up Stand is made of anodized aluminum and weights only 7.2oz (that’s 204.12gr) – just a tad heavier than the iPhone in your pocket, has an ingenious modular design which can raise your laptop to the perfect working height, transform it into a stand-up working desk as well as help you better interact and type on tablets and big smartphones. When not in use, the Stand Up Laptop Stand can be easily dismantled and stored inside it’s main component – the Tube – for easy transportation.

The 3 in 1 Stand Up Stand in a Tube is in project mode at Kickstarter and will set you back a reasonable $49 US. The project funding cap was already reached, which means the stand will safely be delivered in April 2015.
