The TILT Is The First Cooling Stand That Actually Looks Good Under Your MacBook Pro

A cooling stand is traditionally one of the ugliest accessories you can buy for your svelte MacBook Pro, one that’s guaranteed to take all that hard work Apple put into creating a beautiful notebook and just throwing it away. That is, until the TILT came along.

The TILT is the “ultimate cooling stand” for your 15-inch MacBook Pro, and the best thing about it is it doesn’t look like other cooling stands. Carefully designed to match the look and feel of your notebook and made from industrial strength ABS, it promises to eliminate “lap burn” while adding less that 0.6-inches of thickness to your device.

The TILT weighs less than one pound, and it’s shaped to provide a better typing experience both on your desk or on your lap. It also features a built-in tripod thread that allows you to mount your MacBook Pro on any standard camera tripod. (Providing it’s strong enough, of course.)

The device is currently available to pre-order exclusively through Kickstarter, with prices starting at just $45. That’s $10 less than its future retail price, which I think is still pretty cheap for the coolest cooling stand available for your MacBook Pro.
