I’ve made further progress on my laptop harness and reached the next problem to solve. The straps don’t provide the sturdiness and structure I hoped. Instead, I’m left with a sagging laptop and a baseplate that further digs into my chest. I really wanted to build a sturdier PVC pipe-based harness from the get-go, but the lightweight straps seemed like they would be a lower profile solution. When it comes to carrying a bulky plywood laptop stand around, lower profile is definitely path to follow. I’ll sketch out some alterations to this to see if I can get the best of both worlds.
Also, I’m using popsicle sticks to add further support to my laptop. I knew I was hoarding them for some reason.
