Testing, testing, 1, 2, 3!

January 09, 2018

Over the past weeks we’ve been testing our final sample up against the rigours of everyday use and edge case customers. Overall, we are thrilled with the performance, with just a few tweaks left to make. 
In particular, we underestimated how nice it would be to have your backpack standing up, ready and open next to you while you’re working. It felt like an attentive assistant awaiting your next move so you never break the state of flow. 


Change Agents: Roost laptop stand

The Roost Laptop Stand has totally changed the way we work. It’s a light, portable, collapsible laptop stand that makes it easy to prevent poor posture and neck pain no matter where you are.

The benefit of a laptop stand is that you can look straight ahead at your monitor, as opposed to down, and add a portable keyboard and mouse for a more ergonomic desktop-style arrangement. Roost even fits on an airplane tray table - making an otherwise strained work environment significantly more comfortable. Tim Ferris likes to ask his interviewees what purchase for under $100 has most impacted their lives and for us - this is it. Given the number of hours we spend working, writing, connecting, and creating, it’s hard to overestimate the perfect setup.

Thanks for reading and talk soon,
