mBrace Adds A Handle To Your MacBook Pro

By Chris Scott Barr

When you want to take your laptop out of the house, you likely put it in some kind of laptop bag or backpack. This allows you to easily carry the computer, along with any cords and accessories you might need. However, it can also add a lot of bulk, depending on which one you get. If you want to ditch the bag and just find an easier way to carry the laptop, why not add a handle to it?

The mBrace (get it?) is a conceptual handle for your unibody MacBook Pro. You just slip the handle through the opening beneath the screen. When the laptop is closed, the device puts pressure on the lip just above the top row of keys, rather than the actual hinge. You’ll then be able to carry around your laptop by the handle, instead of gripping it the usual way. To be honest, I’m not really sure that this design solves any existing problems, but if you want to help it along, you can back the project over at KickStarter.

    Hmnnn… it would seem that nobody would want to have this since he laptop is exposed and very enticing for thieves. I would prefer the laptop bag than this.

    It turns a great looking computer into something ugly. What a bad idea.
