The Loupedeck+ is a fantastic piece of kit. As soon as it was released, it was already a nice little upgrade over the original Loupedeck with a more solid design, better buttons and knobs, and the promise of future software support. Now it supports a growing array of software with more still to come.
But the Loupedeck+ still has one issue for some people. It sits too flat on the table. With most computer keyboards, we get little feet that allow us to raise up the back end to make it a little more ergonomic. No such luck with the Loupedeck+. The folks at Lensvid, though, have taken things into their own hands by chopping up an IKEA BRÄDA laptop stand to use with the Loupedeck+.
The BRÄDA is a pretty non-descript laptop stand made from what appears to be just a piece of moulded plastic. It’s a little large for the Loupedeck+ by default, but all it takes is a couple of cuts to knock it down to more appropriately sized parts, and some glue or epoxy to put it back together again.
It’s a handy idea, and the BRÄDA is inexpensive (only €5 bought directly from IKEA in the EU). You’ll want to be careful with your cuts, though, if you want it to look neat when it’s finished.
Do you prop up your Loupedeck? How do you do it?
