What do you think would happen if you
spilled your drink and it fell off your desk
directly onto your computer or external
input/output/storage devices? Do you
want to find out or do you want to give up
eating and drinking at your computer?
Give your computer and surrounding
a fighting chance or at the least
save on your cleaning of said devices
which have stylized nooks that don't look
like they expect food stains.
Miniature tents designed to house
anything from surge protectors and
woofers to storage/input/output devices
and even the computer itself.
The bottom of the tent frame is reinforced
and raised half an inch. It also has
drainage and ventilation holes so you
know your device won't oveheat or be
sitting in a pool of spilled coffee. While
the tent is made from a fully breathable
material like regular camping tents it will
also have the top ventilation with the
waterproof coating floating on top for heat
ventilation. Tent can be open in front or
zipped shut for the really paranoid.
Some versions will have internal shelving
to help tidy up your area.
Protective type-through keyboard cover

||Despite the fire hazard, the over-heating hazard, cat-toy potential, and space-occupying issue, I love it!
||While not exactly tents, there are plenty of covers you can buy to protect devices from spills.
||But none that say "Coleman" or "Northface." It could be like a modern-day sherpa camp beneath my workstation. And I'm afraid it would become caked with dust after a while too.
||It wouldn't overheat due to the fact that
the fabric is breathable and has the
covered vents in the top not to mention
air vents in the bottom.
||It would be a tent but more tube shaped
with a top vent.
