Putting an LCD on a stalk
So thinking about ergonomics, I have this idea in my head of computer monitor that's a really light-weight screen on a stalk, like a bendy metal thing that you can position wherever you want so that it's at eye level and you can type without bending your neck all day looking at a laptop screen. The monitor would be wireless and would have a heavy base like a microphone stand so you could position it anywhere and then hang the screen in front of your eyes, whether you're on the couch or a chair or bed or a desk.
But then I was thinking "You know, my laptop's LCD is not that heavy. I wonder if I could just put a stalk on it." :)
Seems like the main problem would be lengthening the LCD cable. Does anyone know anything about the cables?
