When it comes to gaming stations, everyone has their own philosophy: if you don’t want anything to clutter up your desk, you need to know this Youtuber.

If you have to build your gaming station from scratch you want it to be one that reflects you as a person and as a player. There are those who like to have multiple screens, there are those who like to put the desktop tower next to them because they have installed beautiful RGB LED lights, there are those who hate cables and try in every way to hide them.

Here is the entire invisible PC station – Sjbeez

And then there is a Youtuber who has decided to take the idea of ​​a minimal gaming station to the nth degree with an effect that seems to come straight out of a science fiction film. But having succeeded with just a little DIY, it is clear that we are no longer in the realm of science fiction but simply in the realm of applying the technologies currently available.

ChatGPT was apparently also involved in the project and was asked for help to design a part of this futuristic station with the lightest mouse in the world, a floating screen and an invisible keyboard. But how was it possible?

How the unseen gaming station was built

Apparently it seems that Nicholas Zetta, who everyone knows on YouTube as the Youtuber of Basically Homeless, has managed to create a totally invisible work and gaming station. The PC cannot be seen, the keyboard is not there, the mouse is missing and all that emerges from the flat surface of the desk is the screen, completely transparent.

But as with all the best magic tricks, here too it is just a question of point of view. The project started with a Flexispot desk, which if you’re curious you can find on Amazon for around 150 euros, which was dismantled so that it could then accommodate the working part of an Asus laptop mounted under the desk.

Instead of the screen, the Youtuber has treated a transparent plastic panel with a layer that helps intercept the light of a projector while the mouse is managed by a small artificial intelligence capable of transforming the movements of the hand, illuminated by a special spotlight with camera, click.

Also particular is the solution adopted for the keyboard which actually exists but which is simply found under a layer of resin with which part of the desk has been covered. The final effect is extremely interesting and futuristic and is no different from what we see now for example with those who decide to use virtual reality viewers by connecting them to their work computer.

If you want to have fun with something a little easier to assemble, you can purchase virtual laser keyboards on Amazon. These are small projectors with laser light which, by connecting via Bluetooth to the PC, project the keyboard onto the surface and record the point at which the fingers stop in such a way as to then transmit the necessary input to the computer.
