If you’re one of the millions of people who spend their days typing on a laptop, check out FLIO : it’s a slim, collapsible wooden laptop stand that offers an ergonomic viewing height and keeps an angle for easy typing anywhere you go. It was created by Vlad Butucariu, a young designer living in the Netherlands , and is the thinnest wooden laptop stand to date, measuring less than 10mm in thickness. Made from three thin wooden panels that stack together like a small jigsaw puzzle, FLIO elevates your laptop to keep it cool and responsive, while also keeping your posture straight and your wrists at a healthier , more natural angle while you’re working. Stacked, this stand is only 8mm / 0.31″ thick and so light, that it will be almost unnoticeable while on the go. As an added bonus, it’s made from sustainable, high quality wood , so it’s as ethical as it is sturdy and affordable.

Comments Off on Lightning Packs Develops Energy-Generating Backpack for Soldiers and Relief Workers

Lightning Packs LLC have created an electricity-generating backpack that can “provide wearable renewable electricity for combat soldiers or disaster-relief workers operating in remote locations.” Instead of using disposable batteries, which can weigh up to 20 lbs, the new backpack generates electricity via the kinetic movement of the cargo compartment moving up and down. This not only allows for longer missions, but reduces the demand for resupply operations.
