The Roost Saves You from Neck Cramp after Long Hours with Your Laptop

Tuesday, June 11th 2013. | Computer & Accessories

If you’re like me – a freelance tech blogger – you’ll be spending a good deal of time on your day, typing on your laptop. For the first few minutes, you might be able to keep your back straight but after a one hour or so, you’ll start bending your back. If you keep it last for long, your posture will turn bad for sure. I manage to work around such issue by alternating my activity (typing) every an hour but if that’s impossible for you, you may want to snatch The Roost.

The Roost Stand

The Roost, A Collapsible Ergonomic Laptop Stand

On its core, The Roost is a laptop stand made of lightweight yet reliably strong carbon fiber. So if you have this on your work space, you won’t adjust your position to your laptop but the laptop will adjust its stance to ensure maximum comfort for you in the long run. It’s not as fast as Soylent when it comes to raising fund but its campaign at Kickstarter has managed to collect thrice of its original goal in less than a week. Check out the pitch video below!

The maker, James Olander, admits that the idea to make a laptop stand popped up in his head after enduring the discomfort and pain for having a marathon with his laptop. Once you set The Roost right under your notebook, you will no longer need to look down at your fingers – hence, avoid bending your back – as the stand securely raise it a few inches above your desk. You can make sure that one unit is sent to you with a pledge of $65.
