Man Shares A Hilarious But Simple Box Hack That Will Shield Your Laptop From The Sun
Summer is magical. You get plenty of sunlight, vitamin D, and positive vibes. However, its not all just pros in summerthe season has some cons, too. Like the fact that you get plenty of sunlight. And that messes up your ability to work outdoors on your laptop (just like magic messes up electronics at Hogwarts).
Fortunately, someone came up with an easy and obvious solution to the issue thats mucking up some peoples ability to work in nature while some of us are still working away from the office. LinkedIn user Tom Wood shared his cardboard box hack in a tongue-in-cheek post and people loved it so much, they shared photos of themselves applying the hack, too. A lot of people came up with this hack independently of Tom.
You take your laptop and you put it into any cardboard box which creates cover from sunlight. And [drumroll] no more squinting. Its really as simple as that! But who said that the best solutions have to be ultra-complicated, right, dear Pandas?

Toms funny LinkedIn post about the latest technological breakthrough got more than 49k reactions and received over 3.4k comments. The post also went viral on other platforms and plenty of media outlets covered the simple but enjoyable story. It just goes to show that a bit of comedy goes a long way in grabbing peoples attention.
Some critics asked about thermal ventilators so that the laptop doesnt overheat. Tom was quick to point out that he works in the shade and that there are openings in the sides of the box for proper ventilation.
While others wondered whether putting your laptop in a box makes it harder to type. Tom then admitted that its all just for show. However, one LinkedIn user joked that typing could be easier if you put your hands through the slits on the sides of the box first. Which could work but needs some testing!
