Expanding my music set-up, I'm planning to mount a tablet in my kitchen mostly as remote-control (for music playing on the server), but as it can also show websites and movies, it might get -sporadically- used as a 'real' screen too.
I've done all the things I'm comfortable with (server, networking, audio, etc), but now it's on hold because the current card-board "stand" on the kitchen top just won't do and I'm at a loss on how to mount this on the wall.
The possible locations are limited:
- On a tiled-wall right next to the stove (at eye-height)
- Behind the stove on a wall, between some racks: there's not enough space for it to be mounted there 'against' the wall, so some sort of arm has to be used I think
The tablet's specs are:
- No mount points/VESA/Screw-points available
- Weighs about 550 grams
- Size hxb 21+cm x 16+cm (a couple of mm wider on each side), about 1.5cm thick
Some specs I'm thinking of (do DIY-ers also talk "MoSCoW"? :) )
- Holds the tablet safely
- Wires can run from tablet (at least power, maybe audio later)
- Landscape orientation
- Rotation to Portrait
- Turning (viewing angle)
- Movement (from/towards you, maybe left/right/up/down etc)
I wasn't really sure if this was too hobby-like to be ontopic, but meta seems not to mind, so here we are.
