iMoov stand up deskA Stand-Up Desk or a Way to Raise Your Laptop to Eye Level

The iMoov stand-up desk accessory folds up to fit in my backpack. But when I unfold it and set my Macbook on top of it, my eyes are looking at the right place, straight across, not down. That’s the best way to work, whether you’re in quarantine in 2020 or at the local co-working place.  This stand would work out on your deck, or inside on your desk.

This is not an expensive rig, nor is it totally sturdy. You might even call this rickety. But damn, it fits the bill for me, and I never head off to work without it.
