Can someone make an instructable for this? Answered

Hey,

This is my first post on the Instructables community section, so here goes.
I've been looking at this product for awhile now: This
However, I don't live in the states, and have to pay for massive postage costs for something so simple.
So, I'm requesting if someone could help me by making a DIY tutorial version (an Instructable :P) of this?
I need it desperately. Plus it'd increase my nerdiness by 340% _

~Tim.

P.S - Sorry for any spelling errors, or if I posted this in the wrong section or anything of the sort.

That doesn't look like a hard project to manage, i think if you were to sit down and work it out, you wouldnt need a -ible. Btw this is the right place, and don't worry about spelling, if the grammar police come after you just send them my way

Was that a "get out of jail FREE card" from the grammar police chief constable?

I manufacture & sell the Connect-A-Desk. It's actually a very useful product used by many industries. To be specific, it's used in warehouses, hospitals, and even for aircraft maintenance. Using your fingers to type while having the ability to move around can be of great benefit in many situations. Crystal, because you sound like you could really use the Connect-A-Desk, I would like to offer you free shipping anywhere on the planet. Just use order at connect-a-desk.com and use the Amazon checkout link. Use promo claim code: NX5C77L6 This claim code expires on 11/10/08. We hope to have a distributor in the UK by the first of the year.

Umm, i found only a *few* problems with that product;
-Laptops don't let you see ANYTHING outside (lcd washes out)
-what about the cpu intake/exhaust fan?
-uncomfortable?
-WAAAAAYYYY to geeky to even be associated with that product :(
-product is for people that don't mind the pressure against the abdomen from the 'base'

Most those are true, but they do have some exceptions, as some of them are quite specific. 1. You may not always be typing in broad sunlight. Where I am, our clear sky is overcast :P 2. That's true. Your laptop can get hot. But it can also get hot sitting on a normal desk, where it's made to be. Plus, you may be outside, providing slightly more ventilation and cooling. 3. It'd only be uncomfortable if you had it on for a long time, or if it wasn't adjusted properly. 4. I loled at that. That's quarter of the reason why I wanted this :D 5. That's quite true. Then again, just like point 3, if it was adjusted properly, I'm sure you could put more pressure onto the shoulders or upper back. This product I imagine isn't incredibly practical, but it can be handy if say, built into a computer bag, which is what I may end up doing. ~Tim

Find a parent willing to give up a baby carrier or has an unused one. You can use that quick-mount harness front-carrier and mount a pivoting board (masonite, thin plywood, laminated cardboard. You will have to tinker with the straps to support and retain your laptop from slipping off. Good luck.

Meh. Typing on that looks like it would be awkward and uncomfortable.

Haha, thanks for that. And I'm sure I can. But my brains are zapped from this term (It's exam time, woo >_>). Plus, I'm no good at making things (physically) without a recipe/tutorial. It always turns out a horrible mess, unlike my formatted code :D But yea. I'm sure I could, but I just don't trust my own abilities for something like this :) Hence why I'm askin' ya'll. ~Tim P.S - Thanks for the affirmation. I've been on many sites where the grammar police are always watching. Although I generally try to keep my grammar to a good level with a few purposeful extra apostrophes and emotes :D
