Tell Us What Inspired You:
My 10 year old daughter came up with the idea of a portable document/notebook holder that mounts on the laptop display screen's top edge to keep the hand written stories, school projects right in front of the typist. She was doing a school project for which she has to make a poster which required a lot of typing from hand notes and reference books. All this typing hurt her neck so to avoid the pain she thought of a solution which avoided the constant turning of her neck.

It is a portable laptop accessory since it folds and it is very compact/light because this design has only two thin arms with clips attached on their free ends and a folding mechanism on the other ends of the arms. Kids can use it easily as only a bottom clip has to be slid onto the top edge of the laptop/netbook screen and the document/notebook has to be inserted into the top clip. In places like schools, offices and homes where consumers would use this laptop accessory.
TYPE-EZ-buddy assists with typing, making it a faster and comfortable task for school kids and adults alike.
In particular, a patent-pending portable document/notebook holder is designed as a laptop accessory which is to be used with a netbook or a laptop computer. (see U.S. Patent Application No. 13/405,585 field on 02/27/2012 and prototype pictures at www.typeezbuddy.com)
This laptop accessory locates a document/notebook in front of a user. With the use of the portable document/notebook holder typing becomes much faster and comfortable since only upward and downward movement of eyeballs is needed.
