I’ve always been a fan of Dana Neibert’s work, and I recently came across his new kickstarter project called the DigiPlate. What I love about this is that it solves a lot of problems we encounter on set, and I’d love to see this product come to life.
We’ve been using a laptop bag for digital teching, and pretty much the only one we’ve found out there and it is awful, but what can we do? One of the major problems we encounter on a 10 hour day, is the laptop overheating in this case, which the DigiPlate not only mounts the laptop, but acts as a heat sink and helps pull the heat off the laptop. It also allows you to attach the station to different types of stands some cable management.
Enough of me explaining. Get all the details and support it on Kickstarter here. You can see an in depth description and videos. Check out the updates page for a video where they mount the laptop to the roof of a car and drive 80mph.
I have to say, I wouldn’t blog about it if I didn’t back it. Back it with me so we can see this product come to life!
