Introduction: Snuggie Mod for Netbooks
Step 1: What's the Problem?
Laying down on the couch with your knees up is the comfy spot that we've evolved to. It's a fact. But as you can see with the pictures below this leads to the netbook sliding into home problem.
How are you supposed to focus on your next funny comment in a forum thread when your computer keeps getting pulled into your nethers? With this quick mod, that's how. So let's get started.
Step 2: Find Your Comfy Spot
Get nice and cozy in your reading position and place your netbook right where you want it. A place so that it's easy to type and see the glory of the 10-inch screen.
Now mark the spot on the Snuggie at the bottom of the laptop.
Step 3: Position Netbook on Snuggie
Take off the snuggie and lay it out on the floor. Line up the netbook with the chalk mark and then move it left or right to center it.
Step 4: Make More Marks
With the netbook in place, we'll need to make mroe marks of where we'll want to cut.
The goal is to make a couple of slits that can become pockets for the netbook to rest in. So visualize a diagonal line going across the corners of the netbook and mark the spots where that line would extend off of the netbook.
Step 5: Cut!
Remove the netbook and place a cutting mat or some cardboard underneath the snuggie/slanket.
Now cut lines between your pairs of marks.
Recommended, but not shown: reinforce the holes by sewing around them.
Step 6: Enjoy!
You now have a couple of holes to hold your netbook in place! You can now relax without having to keep holding your netbook up.
