If you have a smartphone with a camera, you have undoubtedly fiddled with taking pictures of everything from your face to your lunch.

If you FaceTime with family, coworkers, and friends, your lighting setup may not always be what you would prefer.

To combat this, you should probably look into getting some better hardware, and if you’re going to go all out on some expensive new gear, you may as well get the stuff that looks cool too.

Since we’re human beings, that’s a bit hard on your brain. We like to see and talk to people, go out and explore, or have some kind of mental stimulation in general.

Of course, there are ways to make your traveling workstation much more useful and homey, but it will cost some money.
