The AirSlab is a beautiful laptop cooling pad made of Walnut, Eucalyptus and Cork that offers various uses. 100% Made in the USA.
IMPORTANT NOTE: I previously launched this project and had someone reach out to me through the Kickstarter Community who has helped me achieve better pricing through different production methods. I'm really excited to re-launch with the new lower prices so that more people can afford the AirSlab. Also, the new design will now be "full grain" veneer which means each one will be totally unique!
Here's a beautiful swatch of what full grain veneer looks like:
1. Laptops get extremely hot when you are using them.
2. No-one likes sweaty legs or the feeling of their skin melting off.
3. You are risking damaging your logic-board and CPU if your computer runs too hot continually.
I was dissatisfied with the flimsy plastic laptop cooling pad options available, so I set out to design a beautiful, natural alternative. I came up with the AirSlab, which is a highly functional, lightweight, and simple fix to the problem of laptop heat.
What will you use my money be used for?
That is a great question, your money will be used to help scale production costs so that the AirSlab can be affordable.
