I aimed for a stable end result which would keep my laptop level. Due to this there is one part weirdly extended fowards (see picture)

Different folding possible, this was the one with the most level result in try 3.

Step 3: Add Laptop on Top

what it says in the title. place the ruler under the laptop. the center of the fanned out ruler is at the back of your laptop and the two arms at the side of your keybord for stability.

Step 4: Congratulations!

You have a laptop stand for a better writing position and cooling of your laptop.

And if you are done, you still have your folding ruler.
