Standing desks are becoming a lot more popular now that everyone knows sitting in front of your computer for hours at a stretch isn't so hot for your health, but some of them can be bulky, complex and heavy, almost too much desk for the laptops we all use. X-Stand is a pretty sweet answer and it's one of those great examples of engineering simplicity that's light, portable, durable and flexible.
It's made from bamboo, it's easy to carry, assembles in a few seconds and you're ready to go. It raises your laptop either 9 or 12 inches depending on which way you set it down. It looks good and works without fuss. When you're done, it comes apart in a few seconds and you can take it with you.
Visually, the bamboo gives it a classy appearance and the rubber bumpers on the corners grip the table and your laptop so things don't start sliding when you start working. Unless you're forgetful and leave it somewhere, it will likely serve you well for many years, lifting all of your future laptops. Made in the USA, too. Nice.
It's on Kickstarter and you can pre-order now with deliveries expected to begin in September.
