Ben Heck’s Coach Section Laptop Lets You Compute While Flying

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  November 7, 2010


Created for the latest episode of The Ben Heck Show, the modder created yet another ingenious design, a laptop with a screen optimized for flying in a in the cramped cabin of a commercial airplane.

If any of you have ever tried to use your laptop on the tray table of an airplane, you know how irritating it can be to get the screen angle to work where you can comfortably view it.

Ben’s simple, yet clever design lets you float the screen above the keyboard so you can view the display at a more comfortable angle, while still being able to type. Check it out in action in the video below…

Of course, you need to be able to touch-type in order to use the thing, but overall, I think it’s a design that deserves to be incorporated into a production laptop PC.
