One of the coolest items I’ve seen lately is definitely the Hammacher Schlemmer‘s coffee table which incorporates a functional 32 inch Windows 8 computer. Once placed in the living room, this intriguing tech-table “unleashes” its true potential. Yes, it completes the décor of any room but it has, obviously, a geekier function. You can play games, watch videos, check e-mails and basically you can do with it anything you can do with a regular computer. “With a 178° viewing angle, it is ideal for viewing enlarged photos or maps or allowing multiple users to comfortably view the same data from the couch, the wooden table is topped with an antiglare LCD screen that functions like a tablet computer.”
In terms of specs, the ultra-tech coffee table boasts a generous 32 inch screen with a 1366 x 768 resolution. Moreover, features an Intel Core i5 3.2 GHz processor, 6 GB of memory, 500 GB hard drive, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The fad of owning a distinguished furnishing item such as this, comes with a price. Literally. The tech-table costs $ 7,000. Now, if you ask me, I’d rather choose the coffee table than a second-hand car, anytime!
