It has been a while since we have seen a review of living room furniture, long time readers may remember a certain gaming class beanbag chair from 2008, but with the advent of Steam's Big Picture perhaps it is something we shall see more of. In this case it is more of a gaming class TV Tray, called the Nerdytec CouchMaster Premium with interchangeable wrist and palm rests, Velcro wire management loops, a 4 port USB 3.0 powered hub and a 5m USB 3.0 extension cable. This should allow you to get your mouse, keyboard and any two other USB peripherals set up on the CouchMaster with you comfortably sitting on the couch. It also sports a pocket where you can store some items but open containers of liquids are not going to be safe in it. Read on at Kitguru to see if this is an idea with potential or if you should pass this one by.
"In days gone by, it was rare to see PC gamers sitting anywhere other than at a desk when enjoying their favourite titles. With the emergence and widespread adoption of big-screen TVs and floor-shaking surround sound systems, PC gamers’ desks have a competing entertainment area – the couch."

With the advent of HTPC’s
With the advent of HTPC’s being powered by 680’s and 690’s and the like, and bad ass TV Set’s, it is not uncommon for one to now Game on the TV. So with that being said, I would actually probably get a lot of use out of this. Of course I have a $10K BossRigs.com LC-E HTPC with an EVGA GTX 690 on our main TV and a $5K Bedroom HTPC that has two EVGA GTX 680’s so Gaming on the 120Hz LG is not that bad. Takes some serious NVCP Tuning Skills to get dialed in but Gaming is fairly enjoyable, even to an anal retentive OCD muthatrucker like me.
Bossrigs.com is too
Bossrigs.com is too overpieced. I would never buy or recommend anything from them.
I will patiently await Ryan’s

This might appeal to a larger demographic than you think, it would also be killer for use with a laptop as well. (Awesome couch surfing).
