In 2016, I had back surgery. Knowing I was looking forward to a lengthy recovery, I built this computer cart, so I could use the computer while laying flat on my back. It’s basically a roll-around computer cart to which I added a swing-arm monitor stand and a wireless keyboard and mouse.
Here’s the parts list:
I’m recovered now and the bedroom TV was in sore need of an upgrade. You can see it on the wall behind the monitor in the above picture. So, I moved the cart downstairs, ran some wire through the wall, and now have a simple wall-mounted TV with computer input.
New Problem: How to use wireless USB when the computer is in the basement?!?
USB cables only work properly up to about 25 feet. Short of drilling a hole through my bedroom floor, I had to run the USB cable to the bedside hub at 75 feet to hide it nicely. I found this great USB Extender that provides the signal boost needed to get my keyboard and mouse talking to the computer again!
