The CURB is a Laptop Stand That Can Keep Your MacBook Running Cooler
The CURB is a new project from designed by m, the makers of the AL13 Aluminum bumper case for iPhone.
The CURB is basically a rubberized, triangular-shaped, and lightweight laptop stand for your laptop that can help keep it running cooler, and place the keyboard at a more ergonomic angle that can make it more comfortable to type for long periods of time. The rubberized material that the CURB is made out of allows it to grip to most laptop surfaces.
Because the laptop is being propped at a higher angle rather than flat on a desk, this offers more breathing space underneath the laptop so that the airflow improves and allows heat to be dissipated faster. The CURB offers two different elevation angles, which you can choose based on your preference:
The MacBook Pro, with its aluminum base, can feel extremely hot on your legs when you’re working with it. In addition to use on flat desk surfaces, the CURB can be used on your lap to increase the airflow between the laptop and your legs to prevent surface burns to your skin:
The CURB also includes a slot in the middle so you can route your power adapter wire, or any other important wires, in between your computer and the CURB to keep them from falling when you're working:
