Just an a idea for pleople like me. I am not a tech man and is very dificult for me to build all parts from zero, so i decided to use a logitech old wheel to create rotation monitor system.

Looks real good. I like your rotating mechanism.
Using a button to rotate the monitor is ok, but if you really want to wow the people, make it turn automatically upon the selected game.

Its not a rule!  I prefer pictures over video, especially when the video is pictures ;)

I think the best course would be a write of what you did with pictures then a video of it in action. It looks super neat.
