A SMALL business owner has launched a unique new product which aims to be the ultimate laptop accessory.

The new laptop accessory was a lockdown project for Maldon resident Adam Gibbs.

Adam founded MNK after being inspired by his travels across the globe.

He says he's always had an eye for design and a passion for problem-solving.

Over the past few years he has decided to transform his ideas and branch out on his own.

With his business, the 46-year-old aims to provide high quality, lightweight and robust solutions to protect tech and reduce landfill waste.

He has now revealed his debut product which is an all-in-one laptop case, privacy shield, sun shade and germ blocker.

The product, designed and developed by himself, claims to be splash-proof, water repellent, quick-drying, shock-absorbing and slim.

It boasts an integrated splash resistant and water repellent dark hood which also conceals the screen.

Adam says PROHOOD®, the new laptop case, can reduce screen glare by 80 to 90 per cent.

If not in use the hood can be hidden by magnetic fasteners.

The all-in-one has been developed to cut down on the need for replacements and therefore reduce landfill waste.

Adam said: "It is with great pleasure that I announce the release of PROHOOD®.

"When you don't want to pay for expensive repairs or upgrades and want to protect your laptop from knocks and bumps, scratches and scrapes, dust and grime, spills and germs and keep your privacy, this new and versatile case offers protection from all that and then some."

The businessman has also teamed up with Computers For Charity to collect old laptop cases which the charity then passes on with its computer donations.

By donating their old laptop case to MNK, customers could help reduce waste and claim a discount.
