Whoopie Cushion or Laptop Desk?

Designed by a chiropractor, the LapMate is a unique laptop desk that has a self-inflating mechanism. Just twist the valve on the side and it inflates to provide a soft platform to place your computer on your lap. When you’re finished, you just sit on the LapMate to deflate it (queue the passing gas noise). The LapMate is available in 4 colors and two sizes. One for full size laptops and one for netbooks. The price is $29.95 for either size.

    In what regard is this supposed to be different than any other self-inflating cushion? This technology has been around for decades, I remember my father going camping with a self-inflating air mattress that was basically like this, just a big larger…

    And don’t even get me started about the “designed by a chiropractor” bit.

    I watched the video on their website, and the LapMate differs from other self-inflating cushions because it has a hard, flat surface on one side. The hard side allows air to flow under the laptop to help keep it cool. The other side is soft on your knees. The LapMate also has a wedge shape when it’s inflated so the screen is at a better viewing angle.

    You can get more square inches per dollar with a camping pad:
