          If you use Velcro brand industrial Velcro and cover the whole top instead of two strips that's a start, also when you fasten it, twist the attached item back and forth. If the sticky side isn't staying on the desk, clamp it as tightly and evenly as possible with gorilla glue, but the glue expands so don't use too much or it'll bleed out or not stick as well. Lastly you can also look into products they use to fasten guitar effects pedals to pedal boards, most use Velcro but there is one super strong one I've heard of from a brand called godlyke. The industrial Velcro brand Velcro has worked great for everything I've needed though

                          Love this video! Some of my favorite stuff from you! My only thoughts of improvement might be a monitor mount to the desk (probably have to throw in a another hole in the back for the clamp) since I personally think it cleans up the desk space tremendously on my own desk, and I would love to see your take on a build for a MacBook Pro with graphics centered around Fusion 360 / Solidworks priorities. I also agree with another comment that built in speakers would be incredible. Love the video, great work!

                            Use magnets for the hub. Velcro always falls to time.

                                    maybe a nice thing to do is change the tunderbold for a magnetic one and mound it in the desk so you just have to line your laptop up and its connected

                                                                                        Linus you will probably find that by limiting the FPS to something reasonable you'll get smoother gameplay on certain games.
                                                                                        I have a Razer Blade with a 1060, if I turn the frame rate limiter off on certain games the laptop goes crazy almost like its trying harder to get higher FPS whilst thats happening I'll get 60-70fps.
                                                                                        However I then set it to say 120fps and suddenly its running smoother at 120fps than it ever was on unlimited.

                                                                                        Its counter intuitive but its happened to me a number of times.
