RED Announces the RED ROCKET
Dino Georgopoulos has posted some pictures on www.reduser.net of a device called Launchpad that enables the RED Rocket to work with a laptop. It looks to be about 2 inches thick and is designed to be the same dimensions as a 17″ Macbook Pro so it can be placed inconspicuously underneath. www.reduser.net/forum/showthread.php?t=36074
