About this project

Hello Kickstarters!

About a month ago I switched from PC to Mac. I couldn't be happier and wish I had done it before. I operate a blog called Less Doing which is all about automating, outsourcing, and generally making everything in your life more efficient. When people say that Apples just work, they aren't kidding, it's made things much smoother for me. 

In keeping with making things as efficient as possible, I don't have any paper in my office, I stand in front of my wall mounted screen, and I recently got rid of my desk entirely, instead choosing a simple rolling keyboard stand. This doesn't leave much room for a computer, even one as small as the 2010 Mac Mini. I wanted to wall mount it but there are only a couple mounts made for the second generation Mac Mini and none of them quite suited my needs.

I came up with the idea for this simple bracket. I wanted a bracket that could hold the computer against the wall with only one point of support. That way if I wanted to make it more secure or mount it under a desk, I would only need to duplicate the bracket and turn it around. I put pen to paper and sketched a couple rough designs. After several revisions I came up with the MiniB. It uses a minimal amount of material and accomplishes that task perfectly without blocking the computer in any way. As you can see from the video I mounted mine behind my wall mounted screen for a really nice clean look.

I hope to make this a launch pad to design other similar brackets for other popular electronic equipment like the Nintendo WII and common DVD Players.
