Ergo-table for bed
Attachable Swing-away table
Comfortable means of using notebook/Laptop and similar devices in your personal room is on the bed, many issues occur such as placing these devices direct on the bed sheets which traps the heat flow out and is a fire hazard. Another is the person's posture and no adequate flat surface. While often times limited spaces limits us on our personal use of these devices which may be in bedroom or lounge room in a relax mode. Using fixed tables would lessen the space and might not be ergonomically inclined to fit your posture needs. The swing away table Idea was then brought up and further conceptualize.

Insights from everyday use and traveling such as bus door hinge, wiper and other similar mechanical device as a day to day functionality. Social research from my siblings which have different methods of using the notebook/laptop which is not in proper posture and not ergonomically inclined.
In specific task, there were only minor difficulties in working the idea up to concept stage. Area of focus was more on the simulation.
