Living room keyboards

Hi my name is Anthony and I have been converting gaming keyboards into lap or living room keyboards for the past 3 years. It all started when I got tired of PC gaming on a desk because I was sitting at one for eight hours for work. So I conjured up this idea and starting slapping mouse pads on keyboards like the razer death stalker essential and the steelseries apex raw gaming keyboards. It worked out well and I was gaming on my couch and never went back to PC gaming on a desk agin. If you guys are curios how I started making living room keyboards I have a couple of videos on youtube that guide you threw the process. www.youtube.com/channel/UC5GQp_7vhdTN8zRNFXu7eYQ.
So my question is do you think there is a place for the up and coming living room keyboards like the roccat sova or the razer forge systems. I personally think so being that I have been doing it now for the past 3 years and love it. Give me your feedback on how you feel this market will do in 2016.

doubt there is a big enough market

I doubt there will be a big enough market for this. Most who need those type of keyboards are cord cutters who need a simple keyoard to watch tv. They dont want anything too large nor too expensive. The best one at this time is a cheapee from logitech. Your best bet for information would be from the different gaming forums out there.

PC gaming in the living room

Hey thank you for the reply on the post. I totally agree with your point but how do you feel gaming is going to be done when systems like the Razer forge, alienware alpha and steam box get released and you want to play a keyboard and mouse game. I know some will use those systems on there desk but the systems are targeted to playing on the couch. The problem is about 60 percent of the games on these living room pc gaming systems are mouse and keyboard this is a inexpensive way I played PC games on my couch www.youtube.com/watch?v=FnPJMcOvv3Q Thanks guys and happy gaming
