An old friend contacted me last night to ask if I knew of any kind of laptop computer dust shields that could keep sand out of the nooks and crannies if someone was using their computer at the beach or in the desert. As the story unfolded, apparently it wasn't for her but for a DJ in South Africa who uses her computer to perform at shows and parties held in the middle of the desert.
I instantly imagined her to look something like this:

I told her that if she'd send me detailed photos and measurements of the laptop, I'd make some kind of sealed protective casing with auxiliary cooling fans for her at cost. We'll see what happens.
