Yesterday I wanted to design a sort of case that is made to hold things a designer would want to take with him/herself. I slept on it and have came up with this... A 2 part case which folds out sideways then one side of the case opens holding a load of pens, pencils, ipod etc... un that same side will be the left over space from the hinged equipment holder. This space could hold a few stuff but I thought it would be best holding papers, designs, ideas, sketches etc... On the other side will be a leather padded cutout where the laptop it kept. Also to protect the top of the laptop, the back of the equipment holder from the left side of the case will be padded leather so when it folds onto the laptop its safe and sound. I may have confused a few people explaining it there but here are some quick pictures to show what I mean. As for materials I think the shell would be aluminum as its fairly lightweight and strong and can protect the users possessions well. The outer side could be either black glass, black plastic, leather or wood (bamboo could be nice and is green because it grows so fast). Ive tried to show the motion of how it folds out in the pictures.
