Design: The Prop
Materials: ABS translucent-frosted plastic
Designer: Nicholas Pajerski & Justin Brouillette
"The Prop is a well designed, affordable and portable laptop stand. Functionally, the Prop slightly lifts your laptop off any surface, creating better airflow and improved ergonomics. It disassembles quickly and can be stored compactly in your desk drawer or bag. Unlike other bulky laptop stands and non-portable cooling devices, the Prop is designed to travel and work in every situation (salad tongs?)."
"It ships in a 2-inch wide tube and we suggest you reuse it for a great storage container. Whether you want to sit on the floor and browse the internet or move to your desk and type a paper, the Prop will keep your laptop ergonomically elevated. Simply stated, the Prop is a sexy device to help cool your laptop anywhere a laptop was meant to go.
