Throw in an Intel Pentium Dual Core chip, 160GB HDD, WiFi, iTunes, Firefox web browsing and a classic arcade emulator on a Windows XP based computer that’s embedded into a coffee table and what do you have? How about a $4250 case of neck and back pain?
“The new ‘surface tension’ coffee table is the ultimate in modern style and functionality. Beneath its dark mysterious surface is also a retro games platform, jukebox and media centre. Offering users the ability to play popular arcade style games with authentic arcade controls, listen to music using iTunes, display photos and DVDs, browse the internet, watch digital TV channels and of course, it’s also simply a coffee table.“
Don’t get me wrong, the device looks pretty cool but how comfortable is it going to be leaning over your coffee table to play this thing?
