This. This right here is what I have been waiting for. The first product in Rocaat's new Sova Gaming Board family is here, and it is especially made for gaming from your lounge, bed, or basically anywhere without access to a regular desk setup.

I sit down in the dilapidated wooden chair, and put on the headset. It's the 12th time this week. I've gotten really used to Sony's Project Morpheus, and I love the way it feels.
