The mBrace, A Handy Handle For Your MacBook On Kickstarter

I don’t know about you guys, but I get a sort of pang every time I pull my MacBook Pro out of my bag; I mean, the screen portion is so thin, and I have to grip it pretty hard to lift that 5-pound mother out of there, I’m afraid I’m going to bust a few pixels one of these days. This Kickstarter project, the mBrace, adds a handle to the rear end of your Mac laptop so that never has to happen.

It also folds down to tilt the keyboard up a bit. Personally I’m not sure I want a little tail hanging off my milled slab of a MBP, but it could be handy if you’re in an office and move your gear around a lot. Or something.

At any rate, he’s only a little way toward his rather high goal of $75k to produce this thing. You don’t have to kick-start the whole production run!
