Lazyfrag

For when you really should be in bed

It's two in the morning, and you really should be in bed, but you just can't stop playing the latest thing. What you need is the Lazyfrag - an in-bed game platform!

A cheap projector puts a 30-something-inch screen on your ceiling. Headphones are easy. A rocker-like controller in each hand, with multiple buttons galore, allow you to control all aspects of the game while lying down.

The Lazyfrag recognizes when you stop playing, and automatically cuts out to let you sleep.

       I sleep under my skylight, will it be able to project into the sky in a Batman style, thus allowing you to show off to all your neighbours?

       Ha! Projecting onto the clouds would be cool but only if you could limit it to one person projecting at a time. Otherwise 10,000 people all projecting onto the same spot would look a bit of a mess.

       Unless it was a massive multi-player thing, in upside-down god view?

       "...meanwhile, rockets and planes crash due to distracting images being projected onto clounds. One pilot reported 'the game just looked too interesting. i tried to fly in circles waiting to see if he beat the troll, until i ran out of fuel'."

       GO 32 hour gaming binge!!!!!!   

       and yet i think you would need a pritty large projector with a extremly powerfull light to pull off this stunt.   

       it would probly show up in the next big gameing convention. "Night Sky Gaming!"

       You can't just use a laptop like everyone else?   

       Oh, right, that wouldn't be the halfbakey spirit.
