LapRest laptop accessory

With wireless networking finally fulfilling its promise in the home, more and more people are connecting to the web from the couch. But over prolonged periods, many men find this to be less comfortable than sitting at a desk, according to LapRest.

The company cites State University of New York research (albeit if from four years ago) which claims men who regularly place their notebook on their lap run the risk of damaging their fertility.

According to the BBC's report on the findings, the internal temperature of laptops can exceed 70°C and so the products are generally something men should consider keeping well away from their wedding tackle. Enter the LapRest. The lightweight unit is apparently made of Expanded Polypropylene, and is designed to insulate users from the 'harmful effects of excessive heat'. It's available in a range of colours from £9.99 inc VAT.
