Rocking this setup during self quarantine!

 

Feelin blue and red this morning!

 

I usually keep it to cool colors, but sometimes I surprise people with a red light that floods the room. Over Zoom I’ve gotten responses like “red alert!”, “Steve’s at a rave!” or “oh no, is something wrong?” 😂

 
 

I love the dedicated Spotify monitor.

 

I ❤️ indie rock so always got the tunes going! There is a Sonos in the room too for when I want to dance with myself.

 

Nice setup. How do you get this working when your laptop has just one HDMI port?

 

The external GPU in the top right. While it doesn’t provide all the extensibility of a Thunderbolt 3 Dock, it does allow me to upgrade the GPU over time and boost GPU acceleration in apps I depend on like VSCode. Both monitors are connected to the eGPU, then 1 Thunderbolt 3 cable goes to the MBP, which charges the MBP as well. At first there were issues with disconnecting the eGPU in Mohave but those issues have since been corrected by Apple.

That's alot to absorb... Thanks!

I'm on a Windows Lenovo laptop with just one HDMI port ... I will need to find a simpler solution.

 

Woah are those backlight LEDs?

 

Yeah it’s just a cheap LED strip I purchased on Amazon I can control with a remote.

I forget that other humans put more effort into arranging their workspace. I can't do anything with physical electronics or woodwork :frown:

You don't have to do anything with kits like these. They're usually self-adhesive so you stick them to whatever and away you go. I've got a 2m lightstrip in my kitchen (and some others) and I ran it along the edge of my cupboards by peeling off the tape and pressing it into place. Low-effort, high-reward - give it a go?
