Gaming Bed 2.0

I am proud to announce that Gaming Bed 2.0 is complete!

It started as a dream... a dream where I was able to play all of my video games from bed in both comfort and style.





As you can see, there are only input and output devices at the desk. I wanted to avoid a bunch of noisy computers/consoles near my bed. All of the toys are in an opposite corner, with all wires running through a conduit under my window.

Everything is running analog audio into a mixer at my desk. This allows me to control the volume of each channel individually. The audio all runs into a Bose speaker system with simulated surround sound, with the speakers built into my bed. There is also a master audio control on the ledge of my bed.

Oh and yes, that second monitor is on a 3 foot swing arm and moves over my bed (and tilts down) for easy viewing. The swing arm does not need to be tightened when it is moved. I simply position the 22" Samsung LCD where I want it and it stays there. In case you were wondering, the other monitor is a 19" Westinghouse.





Here are where the toys are. I have a PS3 and 360 hooked up in the shelving unit, with my PC (Windows 7) off to the side. I ran a CAT 6 cable through my ceiling and wall and into a compartment under my PS3 where it meets my router. Proudly, my entire network is gigabit. No visible wires! :)





These next pictures didn't turn out well, but it gives you an idea of how it looks from the bed. The LCD is a little crooked in this picture, but that's easy enough to fix by grabbing the LCD on each side and rotating it.





The light can be turned off via remote control. I think I'm going to go lay in bed and do some gaming. Goodnight!!!
