Alcove’s Laptop Case Unfolds into a Private Workstation

— June 28, 2017 — Tech

Alcove, a first-of-its-kind laptop case that unfolds into a sleek private workstation, is here to solve the problems of distraction and loss of privacy that so many professionals face when working in shared environments. Created by Alcove Group, Alcove has patent-pending side panels designed to direct unwanted outside noise away from the user while keeping in the sounds they do want.

Not only is Alcove’s ultra-compact case easily transportable, fitting any 13”-15” Mac or PC laptop, it is also customizable to workspaces. Sitting in a dimly lit coffee shop? No problem. Alcove’s built-in optional backlight, which is rechargeable, allows users to read and write in these low light conditions. Alcove is here to support users, wherever and whenever they do their work.
