I hope everyone had a safe and happy Christmas. My family and I had a wonderful time. We had Christmas at home and visited relatives in Indiana. It was a beautiful white Christmas day here. We had just enough snow to cover the ground but not so much that travel was bad.
One of my presents was a Slingbox Solo. For those of you not familiar with the product it allows you to watch your cable TV from any place you have an internet connection. You can watch it on a computer or many different cell phones and the Ipad or Ipod touch. It works great and even lets you access your DVR. You can view the TV guide, change channels and even record a show to your DVR.
I have an Ipad and an Ipod touch so I came up with the idea of using the Touch to watch my TV while I scroll. I know, I'm a geek. It let's me watch TV, play my music collection and watch my internet podcasts.
I wanted a stand to hold the touch and keep it somewhat protected from the dust. A dowel rod some MDF and clear Plexiglas and I was all set. It also lets me easily move it to where ever I want to watch it.
I know this is an expensive way to get cable TV in your workshop but if you want to take your cable or satellite TV on the road when you travel then the Slingbox is a great solution. A side benefit for me was having portable wireless cable TV in my workshop.
In the picture above you see the holder with the Touch connected to some external speakers.
Here is the side view of the holder.
A close up view showing the Plexiglas front for protection. I plan to seal the end with fabric with a slit to keep more dust out and still be able to get the Touch in and out easily.
