LapDome Laptop Bags with Popup Shade


lapdome-laptop-caseLapDome Inc. makes a line of the most unusual laptop bags I’ve seen.  These bags, when collapsed, look like more regular laptop bags.  Some are padded and used to carry your laptop;  some are not padded and are meant to be carried in your regular laptop bag as an accessory.  All pop open to make a dome-shaped tent for your netbook or laptop.  Why do you need a tent?  LapDome says these pop-up tents provides shade that make your computer screen visible when you’re using it outdoors.  The back of the tent has slots for your power and security cables, and the tent front has a lockable zipper.  They range in sizes from the Junior, which works for netbooks and portable DVD players to the Planet Rambler for notebooks – even a 17″, with a snug fit.  Prices range from about $25 to about $80, from LapDome.

    Looks like a Kitty Kozy or a Hamster Hut or,
    or, in other words, ah well, you know the words.

    This also can provide a bit of privacy from the guy sitting next to you in the airplane, although it might look a bit weird. What about ventilation? Looks like it might get a little warm in there, especially if you are sitting in the sun. Maybe a solar-powered exhaust fan out the back would be a nice addition.
