The Loplin Hood

Mac Format - - GADGETS - £43

What is it? The Loplin Hood is a Kick­s­tarter project that blocks flare light and pre­vents un­in­vited view­ing on your Mac­Book. The Hood snaps onto the Mac­Book mag­net­i­cally and folds away in seconds. It’s man­u­fac­tured from an ul­tra-thin fab­ric and uses a selfsup­port­ing struc­ture of car­bon-fi­bre rods (like a kite) to snap into place and stay rigid. It will be avail­able for the 13- and 15-inch Mac­book Pro (uni­body mod­els from 2008 and later) and 13-inch Mac­Book Air (from mid-2011 and later). It comes in Slate, Dark Cherry Red, Sea Blue and Spring Green. When’s it due? Early 2015. Why are we ex­cited? Much like the Smart Cover for iPads, the Loplin Hood uses the Mac­book´s in­ter­nal mag­nets to clip on tight. After use it can be eas­ily stored inside your Mac­book’s sleeve or bag, just pull it off and fold the two sides in. For some­thing that’s per­ceived as be­ing cum­ber­some, the Hood looks like it’s has­sle-free.
