About the Veego Laptop Stand
Thin and Lightweight:
The Veego is thin and lightweight, made from the world’s thinnest composite panel. When it’s folded, it’s 4.0mm thin and only adds 83 grams to your laptop
Made of aluminium and a polymer core, the patented German manufactured panels are used by architects to build buildings.
Attachable, yet Removable:
The Veego Laptop Stand attaches using an innovative microsuction pad that you can remove, reposition, and reattach without losing any sticking power.
A leading European test lab has shown that the hinge application is unimpaired even after 80,000 bends. If you were to open your Veego Stand 10 times a day, it would last you 21 years.
The laptop screen is raised for improved ergonomics, relieving the back and neck strain accumulated from “laptop hunch”.
Fits Easily into Laptop Bags and Sleeves:
With a form factor that does not compromise the slimness of your sleek machine, you can continue to use your favourite laptop bag.
Keeps Laptop Cool:
Elevating the laptop allows for better airflow and ventilation, keeping your laptop cooler and extending the battery life.
Studies show that a tilted keyboard helps to improve the accuracy of typing. The Veego Stand raises your keyboard without adding extra strain to your wrists and hands.
Compatible with a Wide Range of Laptops:
Supports laptops from 11” to 18″.
Won’t Scratch Table:
The Veego Stand doesn’t scratch the surfaces it’s on.
Optional Cork Base:
For those that want some extra grip for their Veego Stand, you’ll have the option to add a thin layer of cork to the base. This will be sent to you and you can add it to your Veego Stand whenever you want.

Aluminum and polymer core material: This patented German material is plastic on the inside and aluminum on the outsides. This makes the material very strong but extremely light. For the hinges, the aluminum is cut off leaving only the plastic, allowing for Veego Stand to bend.
Microsuction Pads: This innovative material is covered in microscopic suction cups to create thousands of partial vacuums between the pad and the laptop. The microsuction pads deliver a strong, glue-like hold, without the permanence or residue of glue. The microsuction pads can be cleaned and made sticky again by using tape to remove any debris or dust collected on the pad.
ABS Plastic: The two black slots on the sides of the Veego Stand will be 3D printed with ABS plastic, a material known for its impact resistance and toughness.
Cork Liner: Backers will have the option to add a thin adhesive natural cork liner to the base of the Veego Stand, to reduce how much the laptop slides.
As a frequently travelling Engineer, my laptop was the only computer I owned. When I noticed pain in my neck and shoulders from “Laptop hunch,” I created a temporary laptop stand out of a notebook and my phone. Embarrassingly, not only was it too flimsy, it also broke my phone.
I was disappointed that everything on the market was bulky or required that I bring along an extra keyboard and mouse. So I set out to make a laptop stand that I could carry around with me as easily as I carry my laptop. I wanted something strong and supportive, yet with a minimalist aesthetic that wouldn’t cause me to feel self-conscious about using in public.
In the last few months, after moving from Singapore to Vancouver, I have been working hard on the Veego Stand, pursuing my long-time dream of inventing. After hundreds of hours of design, 7 prototypes, and gathering feedback from dozens of people, the Veego Stand is finally ready.
