How do I play PC games from the couch?

Looking for the best wireless keyboard/mouse/lapdesk solution to play PC games from my couch.

I recently hooked up my PC to my 32" LCD and I would like to play some PC games (FEAR, Call of Duty 4) from my couch. I wanted to know if anybody else has a setup for this. It seems like it would be a growing market, but I can't seem to find anything on it.

The Phantom Lapboard was supposed to do this but I can't find many reviews.

I was using a Gyration rig for the longest time, but for many reasons, it's suboptimal. Maybe some of their newer offerings are more acceptable? You'd have to tell me.

I also use an ATI Remote Wonder, but that's for my SageTV PVR setup, and not for gaming.

Yeah, the Phantom Lapboard would be the thing to use if it actually ever came out. Which it won't.

For the sake of clarity, the Gyration kit I was using was the early version of this.

I vote for a wooden plank. I used to use that with my old computer setup. Couch + 4 chains from the ceiling hooked to a wooden board, holding the computer. The wooden plank was on the couch for mouse and keyboard placement.

Response by poster: Wow! I can't believe that the vaporware folks are the only people to come out with something to do this (which of course will never ever come out). Seems like the market would be bigger as pretty much every TV now is perfectly good computer monitor.... eh....
