My love for the state of Oregon and everything it has to offer is huge! Whether it be the professional/college sport teams, the amazing scenery, or even the history behind Oregon there is a reason for everyone to love it! I love to use my hands and being creative! That creative bug is what lead to this laptop stand project being created!
Apart of being creative is that I am constantly on the computer searching for items to purchase for different products. I noticed that my laptop would tend to start running SLOW after a while of use! This because very frustrating and so I did some research and found that its recommended to have laptops up off the surface to allow for good air flow keeping the laptop COOL temperature. This helps keep the internals of the laptop form overheating and can add years to a laptops hardware! I designed this stand to provide great airflow to people's laptops!
Below are a few sketch designs of plans I had originally thought of before deciding on the final one! Some I felt were too boring, too tall/short, not appealing and I settled on the one pictured in the main pic!
Once I had decided on the design and dimensions I wanted to go with I began began the free hand design on a piece of wood! I cut this out and used it for a stencil moving forward. I plan on creating a metal stencil once the project is funded!
This stand is great for allowing proper airflow to the underside of laptops adding to the life of the laptop! Also great for raising the laptop to a comfortable level to keep your posture proper!
Fits: All sizes of Macbook, Macbook Air, Macbook Pro, Dell, Acer, HP and MORE laptops! Also fits some iPads in both directions and iPad mini in one direction.
Additional Project Information:
I decided to offer 2 stain choices. My initial thought was to offer more however I wanted to keep things simple and felt a light and dark would cover everyone's needs. Therefore I have decided to offer just the two!
Along with the stain color I put some additional thought into size as I felt that was important. I didn't want the stands to be too tall or too short so I made a couple different sizes and found just the right size!
Additional Reward Info:
Here is the Love Oregon sticker included with some of the reward deals!
Risks and challenges
I can think of only one risk that could potentially have a negative effect on this project. That risk is being the fulfillment of orders if there is an overwhelming response.
This concern is in regards to the post project order fulfillment. I will personally be hand making each of these stands to ensure quality. I will also be labeling the addresses on the packaging as well as packaging the stands myself. If there is a HUGE response to the project a potential risk would be having to fill all order alone and in a timely fashion. If this is the case I have consulted with a couple of friends who are willing to help take the burden off.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
