Couch Gaming with the Phantom Lapboard

Posted in John Landino, Message from the CEO, Phantom Lapboard with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 2, 2011 by jlandino

The time has finally come!  Companies like OnLive & Valve now offer cloud gaming through the TV with a MicroConsole or workstation configuration.  Now a long term gaming session can be done in the comfort of the couch with the added large screen display of your HDTV.  The only problem: how do you couch compute with the full functionality of a keyboard and mouse?

The Phantom Lapboard’s unique patented design allows the end user the only solution in the world for couch gaming in any position even for both lefties and righties.  Cloud computing has entered the living room  so whether you are couch gaming, using Internet TV or an HTPC the Phantom Lapboard is your input device “where you want it and when you want it”.

Turn on UT3, sit back and use your Phantom Lapboard to blast the enemy to pieces!

Update of the OnLive MicroConsole & Phantom Lapboard

Well the first thing I found out was that FPS games are darn hard however I am digging URIII.  Secondly the more I use Onlive & my computer on the flat screen the more convinced I am in our Phantom Lapboard solution.  I like to sit on the couch and switch from TV, OnLive & my computer.  I’m also a cyclist so anytime I can get my feet up on the couch really helps during the heavy training. Thus hanging back on the sofa and being able to use all my media devices is very very cool!

The use of a mouse, for me at least, works much better than a touch pad or keyboard short cuts.  Now that I am doing some couch Gaming I also see how important a mouse is as well.  I like to find unique positions which I can relax my legs but still have the Lapboard fitted for responsive Gaming, here lies the real value in our multi-level/position input device.

Again expect Onlive to delve into streaming movies and hopefully bring a browser too.  The games play very well on the OnLive real-time network, the only problems I had were with my own IPS during the days running up to Christmas when bandwidth was super crowded.  I would like to blame my poor Gaming skills on something other than me but truth be told…I kinda suck right now.

The good news is I have a comfortable way to get better at couch Gaming with the Phantom Lapboard and the super cool and affordable OnLive MicroConsole!

OnLive MicroConsole needs a Phantom Lapboard!!!

Onlive releases its PC gaming connectivity for the flat screen TV again reinforcing the trend to funnel digital media & entertainment to the living room.
“However, when we plugged in a standard keyboard and mouse (using the two USB ports on the front of the MicroConsole), our FPS experience improved dramatically–no doubt giving comfort to PC-only gamers who swear that a mouse/keyboard combo is the only way to really play a shooter.”
