Working from home has its perks, of which working outside while topping up your tan should be one. However, over-heating laptops and the sun's glare on the screen can make working outside almost impossible.

Luckily business solution specialist BIGDUG has come up with the garden laptop shelter. It is the ultimate hot weather accessory for working from home.

The shelter looks a little like a private working booth you'd usually find in a library. When stood on a table or the floor it creates an alcove large enough to shield your laptop (but not you) from the sun's rays.

It is packed with sunny weather essentials. The shelter has a built-in shelf to hold your sun cream, there is nothing worse than getting sun-burn while at work.

It also has a fan holder to help you cool off as you top up your tan. It is even equipped with a hydration station, a.k.a a water hat that fits two small bottles. You can either wear it as you work or leave it on top of the shelter which has a special fitting for it.

BIGDUG created the shelter after their own research revealed that 20 per cent of people enjoyed topping up their tan when working from home. However, 42 per cent said they wished they had a laptop shelter to protect their screen.
