Alcove Mobile Laptop Privacy Workstation

Make everywhere your own personal office with the Alcove Mobile Laptop Privacy Workstation. This laptop case serves a dual purpose: when open, it gives you total privacy with unfolding walls. The Alcove is superbly compact and lightweight while adding protection to your device when folded down. When you need to get some work done, simply unfold and you’re good to go. The workstation is complete with a built-in light bar so you can work day or night. Ideal for commuters and travelers, the sides actually help to block the sun so you can better see the screen. This means you can work in more places than before for total convenience. Coming with a strap, Alcove folds back down around your laptop in two swift movements so you can get back to your journey.

Hi Regina, We are in process of conducting our initial quality assurance audit and will post an update on shipping early next week. Thanks.
Regina Moyer
Any update on shipping?
Sony Djuana
Hi Yared,
I also need to add accessories. Please do email me how to? Thanks.
Hi Lorenz, It most certainly is still possible to add an accessory. I’ll coordinate with you via email. Thanks! Yared
Lorenz Schirmer
Is it still possible to add accesories?
@Justin Yeo: Hi Justin, That’s correct, any add on accessories you have backed will be included in your order. We just need to confirm shipping address and color of your Alcove.Thanks.
Justin Yeo
Hi, the survey did not ask for the add ons which I have pledged. Can I assume you will just check and put them into the package?
Thanks Ari, appreciate your support! Glad you were a part of the early development of Alcove. Switching gears now to ensure we deliver an amazing product to our backers!
I had the chance to play with one of the early prototypes. It is a really cool product that will allow anyone the ability to work in private anywhere at any time. Best of luck to y'all on this journey. We are so happy we could be a part of it.
@Leticia: Thanks Leticia! We are just shy of our campaign goal and can not wait to deliver Alcove to you!!
We travel all the time for work, I cannot wait to use my own Alcove!
@Adam Edwards: thanks for your pledge Adam! Great questions about a smaller version and acoustics:
1)The side panels are designed to fold inward to shrink the overall footprint of Alcove. We actually call this position “airplane mode” and have an image on our Kickstarter page. We’ll post a quick video demo on our next update to our backers. 2) A portion of the pledges we raise on Kickstarter will be used to continue our testing with Dr. Barnard and team. We fully intend to share the sound audio and data with our backers. Help us get the word out about Alcove and share our link. Thanks again for your support!
Adam Edwards
Great idea, but two questions: 1) Any chance of developing a smaller one since the width of airplane seats is typically less than 20"? I don't want to infringe on my neighbor's space.
2) For those of us who are not acoustic engineers, can you record the difference in ambient noise in front of an Alcove and outside of its area?
@Clement Lee: You’re right Clement, the port holes will be on both sides to accommodate different types of laptops/devises. The picture was a close up to show the detail of new port hole design. Thanks!
Clement Lee
Agree that portholes for charging should be placed on the side but my recommendation is to place them on both sides.
Wow, that's awesome to hear Mary! I'd be happy to speak with your school and even provide a live demo of Alcove. If they are ready to order in bulk, simply select the number of cases they want under the Team Pack perk. For example, if they want 20 cases, enter "4" for the pledge amount under the Team Pack perk. Contact me directly at if you need further assistance. Thanks again! -Yared
Mary Moya
My son, as a new middle schooler will totally benefit from this! It would help him focus when he is so easily distracted by outside noise. I spoke to his school and they are interested in doing a bulk order. How do I do that if the site only offers Alcove Team Packs of 5? Thank you so much, love the simple design!
Thanks Pablo! As product designers, the challenge is often how to keep removing design elements and keep only what's necessary. We pushed ourselves to develop a dead simple innovation to solve the complex challenges of working on the go.
Thanks again for the words of encouragement!
Pablo Rendon
Item looks great and doesnt take up much room. I wish this kickstarter success!
SiYing, All questions are welcomed! Apologies that the process is not user friendly for you. If you add the amount of the two accessories ($19 and $29) to your $79 super early bird perk, that will trigger a notice to us that you have manually bundled the case and both accessories at $127. During fulfillment, we will send you a survey to confirm your selection before completing your order. Please let me know if you still have further questions. Thanks. Yared
SiYing Tan-Yee
Pardon my ignorance.. How do I add the order of both accessories to my Super early bird pledge?
Leilani we are humbled by your feedback. Thank you! The encouragement and support is the fuel that drives us to push hard and make sure we deliver a stellar product for our backers. Many thanks. Yared and Sergio
Leilani Bell
I simply love the sleek design of this product. As an on the go sports mom my kiddo is often challenged with dragging his hw to the gym/dining out at times. The idea of this case being able to block out even a portion of the noise around would be instrumental for his concentration. I look forward to watching this come to life and thrive for years to come.
Thanks for the compliment Len! We're working hard to deliver a solution to support the way you and many others work today. Alcove will be there for you! Sergio
Len bell
Outstanding innovation
Justin, Many thanks for your early support! You can add both accessories to your early bird perk for $48. Let me know if you have any further questions. Yared
Justin Yeo
Possible for me to add $48 to my super early bird pledge for the accessories?
