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.
