Here, at last, are the long-promised photos of the computing stand that I found in the ICU ...
This floor-mounted stand, intended for an LCD panel, but which I have adapted for my Tecra M4, allows you to position the Tablet PC anywhere in a large radius , including directly overhead, etc. Get comfortable, move the tablet to a convenient position and read or write away.
I was unable to get the real picture I wanted - one of me laying on my back with the Tablet PC conveniently suspended above me. (These photos were taken in the ICU and I did not want to move my mother-in-law just to get the picture. I will, however, share my Tablet PC with her and show her this blog, when she wakes up.)
I can already tell that Kathy's not impressed with the idea of having one of these in our bedroom or the living room just so that I can read eBooks on my tablet. Nice idea, I guess.
Too bad. It was great not having to hold the Tablet PC in position yet being able to position it anywhere I wanted.
I did take many pictures of the mechanical design so I could build one. Perhaps I'll even build robotic Tablet stand with voice control that will come out of the ceiling and move around at my command.
Kathy doesn't think so.
