Description

    FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention relates to portable holders for computer laptops.
  • BACKGROUND
  • Laptops are a ubiquitous part of society and are used in virtually all aspects of the economy. People use laptops at their desk, on their lap while flying, on a train, in a car, while in bed, on a couch, even on a toilet. Use of laptops while standing and moving around, however, has largely been limited to balancing on one forearm, and typing single handedly with the free arm. Work-arounds have been made, most notably the Tablet™ PC which allows use of a stylus on a screen that folds on top of the laptop keyboard.
  • Presently known art does not sufficiently address and solve these problems. The following represents a list of known related art:
  • Issued to/ Date of Issue/ Reference: Published By: Publication: US 2006/0175365 A1 Sandler Aug. 10, 2006 US Pat. 5074222 Welch Dec. 24, 1991 US Pat 5573158 Penn Nov. 12, 1996 US Pat 5,421,499 Bauer Jun. 6, 1995 US Pat. 5,222,641 Medeiros, et al.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • Before beginning a detailed description of the subject invention, mention of the following is in order. When appropriate, like reference materials and characters are used to designate identical, corresponding, or similar components in differing figure drawings. The figure drawings associated with this disclosure typically are not drawn with dimensional accuracy to scale, i.e., such drawings have been drafted with a focus on clarity of viewing and understanding rather than dimensional accuracy.
  • In the interest of clarity, not all of the routine features of the implementations described herein are shown and described. It will, of course, be appreciated that in the development of any such actual implementation, numerous implementation-specific decisions must be made in order to achieve the developer's specific goals, such as compliance with application- and business-related constraints, and that these specific goals will vary from one implementation to another and from one developer to another. Moreover, it will be appreciated that such a development effort might be complex and time-consuming, but would nevertheless be a routine undertaking of engineering for those of ordinary skill in the art having the benefit of this disclosure.
  • As shown in FIGS. 1-5, a foldable portable universal laptop computer holder and harness 10 for hands-free mobile use of a laptop while standing or walking 10 is provided and includes a laptop tray frame 12, a tray arm 14 connected to said tray frame 12 for supporting a laptop computer L, a torso bar 18 pivotally connected to said tray arm 14, wherein said tray arm 14 can pivot up essentially parallel in position to said torso bar 18 and can pivot down essentially perpendicular in position to said torso bar 18, a chest support 24 connected to said torso bar 18 wherein said chest support 24 can roll rotatably in relation to said torso bar 18, one or more housings 26 attached to said chest support 24 wherein said housings 26 can adjustably slide in relation to said chest support 24, and shoulder supports 28 pivotally connected to said housings 26 wherein said shoulder supports can pivot laterally in relation to said housings 26.

  • As shown in FIG. 1, in position of use, user has shoulder straps 28 attached over shoulders grabbing on to the upper back of the U. Chest support 24 lies upon the chest of the user U. Torso bar 18 extends down from chest support 24 along the torso of the user U. Tray arm 14 is in open position, with pin 16. A computer laptop L rests in the laptop tray frame 12 and laptop L is conveniently available for use while the user operates it and moves around. Notably both arms are free and the laptop L is supported.
  • As shown in FIGS. 2, 4, and 5, tray arm 14 and tray frame 12 with laptop L can be folded up to the torso bar 18. Shoulder supports 28 can be spun rotatably in the housings 26 of chest support 24 toward each other from a handle 30 for carrying. Shoulder supports 28 can also be folded down on top of the folded up tray arm 14 and tray frame 12.
  • As shown in FIGS. 6-17, in a second embodiment of a foldable portable universal laptop computer holder and harness 100, the holder 100 can be enclosed in a case C and shoulder supports 128 slid on overt the other to create a convenient handle 130.
