If you find yourself frequently annoyed by prying eyes or bothersome reflections while working on your MacBook at public places, a German team has introduced an innovative solution on Kickstarter. The product, known as the Loplin Hood, is a cleverly designed, ultra-light hood that easily attaches to your MacBook Pro or MacBook Air, providing privacy and reducing glare by covering the sides and top of your screen.

The Loplin Hood is remarkably lightweight, tipping the scales at only 35 grams.

It is crafted from a soft, thin fabric that effectively shades your screen and is supported by a self-standing structure made from carbon fiber rods. The design utilizes the MacBook’s built-in magnets for a secure, quick attachment.

Compatible with both the 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pro models as well as the 13-inch MacBook Air, the Loplin Hood promises versatility. It is expected to be available to backers by April 2015, with options to choose from several colors including spring green, dark cherry red, sea blue, and slate.

The Kickstarter campaign for the Loplin Hood has just kicked off and has reached approximately 2.8 percent of its funding goal so far.
