Computex 2015 - One of the devices I wanted to use at Computex 2015 the most was the just-announced Lapdog, an accessory for your lap that houses a Corsair keyboard and mouse.

Underneath Lapdog is a considerable amount of padding and foam that makes it comfortable to sit on your legs, but I did find a few issues with this prototype - keep in mind, this isn't the final design. There's no room for your wrists on both sides (keyboard and mouse) and there's no vertical wiggle room for the mouse.

The top of the Lapdog houses a bunch of the cabling from the mouse and keyboard, which is something Corsair will be fixing in the new prototype. But, how did it feel to game on it? In a word: awesome. I was able to sit back on the couch and play Grand Theft Auto V on a 65-inch 4K TV without a problem, where I was far more comfortable than sitting at my desk.
