#2

Needs an adjustable bed that rotates to vertical… for completeness…


#3

I don’t want to drink my beer with a bendy straw.


#4

Guaranteed to prevent those wasteful moments of intimacy.


#5

Next: a support system to hold her forearms while she’s typing.


#6

Hikikomoris rejoice!

Homer: Hey! What’s Lucky hooked up to?
Nurse: A respirator. It breathes for him.
Homer: And here I am using my own lungs like a sucker.


#8

anybody who spent time on their phone laying on their back in bed knows that your hands will get numb and tingly when they’re up in the air like that.


#9

Unless that thing weighs a lot, it looks to me like you’d need to be a really light typist for it to work well.


#10

Lying down on the job has never been so productive.


#11

Hooker/porn star joke goes here


#12

Not if you get one of these.


#13

I know hehe :slight_smile:

My dad spent a number of weeks in traction about 20 years ago, so he attached a perspex sheet to the headboard with some g clamps to allow him to read without changing position. I’m pretty sure that a better solution if you were going to be working in bed enough to make buying this worthwhile would be to replace the laptop with a large tablet and external keyboard, so you could type on an angled surface and rest your wrists. It shouldn’t be hard to get a holder for the tablet that allows you to touch the screen, then most of the time you don’t need to be straining your eyes or lifting your hands.

I’m not a huge way off that :blush:
11" ultra-portable laptop fully folded out and balanced on my chest with a wireless mouse only requires minimal support from the left hand to keep it balanced for ultimate weekend-morning bed-websurfing laziness :slight_smile:

The screen ends up at approximately the ideal height without needing to be lifted up. Typing is a nightmare, but it’s great for websurfing or games that only require WASD and mouse.

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) … read up on this before lying down full time.


#17

I routinely sleep hanging upside down from a cave ceiling, so this does nothing for me.


#18

You will at some point in your life have to spend an extended time in bed, period. You will need this.


#19

I find it easier to simply dictate my search criteria to my faithful lackey and leave the tiresome typing and reading to him.

That’s a neat idea. It appears to be a basic adjustable laptop stand like this one or this one, plus a strap. Apparently they used a very expensive strap.

I’ve already got one of those stands; if circumstances ever require me to spend a long time in bed, I may ask someone to grab me a strap to go with it.
