New Gadget Prevents Laptop-Induced Infertility in Men; X-Files Actor Invents Patented Solution

LOS ANGELES --(Business Wire)-- Dec. 22, 2004 -- As the X-Files science fiction TV character Langly, actor Dean Haglund is the familiar face of everyone's favorite techno-geek. In a case where fact isn't far removed from fiction, Haglund is also the face behind his own techno-geek invention, the "Chill Pak." Haglund recently patented the Chill Pak, a cooling system for computer laptops, which were identified in a study last week as the culprits behind lowering sperm counts in men.

Haglund's Chill Pak is a freezable mat designed for placement beneath a laptop to cool the CPU (Central Processing Unit), which tends to overheat when users run today's computer programs. Not only does this cooling action allow the laptop to run faster and more smoothly, it also prevents the overheating attributed to male infertility. The Chill Pak is encased in a condensation-free material to protect the electronics from moisture.

Haglund inadvertently discovered this innovation while recovering from a knee injury. Haglund recalls, "I was watching a movie on my laptop, and it kept locking up on me. The ice pack protecting my knee injury accidentally slid underneath my laptop, and the movie immediately began playing, trouble-free. I realized the cooling action of the ice pack was the key." Haglund immediately launched his Chill Pak invention through his own company Geek Chic, which is scheduled for beta-testing with Time Warner Cable employees nationwide. The Chill Pak retails for an affordable $19.95 and can be personalized with corporate logos.

A stand-up comedian as well as an actor, Haglund's quick humor is found in Chill Pak's slogan: "A laptop without a Chill Pak is like a techno-geek without corrective runs, but not as fast." Haglund currently has two additional computer products in development under his own Geek Chic label.
