As a writer who spends a lot of time working in coffee joints, this invention (featured today on LifeHacker) looks to be a work of inspired genius. I usually put my messenger bag over my laptop...or put the laptop back in the bag. But any thief knows that a messenger bag is generally used for carrying a laptop. So this is a much craftier disguise. It is, however, a bit pricey at $86. But, as the folks at LH suggest, how hard could it be to just make your own, right?
