This has to be the coolest coffee table ever.
The Android version of this unique and techie coffee table features technical specs – 60-point simultaneous touch technology and integrated Core i7 computer system – as the original, its Windows-based one. A 46-inch bezel-free 3M C4667PW multi-touch LCD display at 1080p resolution, with a chemically-strengthened glass surface and IP54 waterproof rating, with a 3.7 GHz quad-core processor, 16 GB of RAM and a 500 GB hard drive hidden within a high-grade aluminum pedestal. Not bad, wouldn’t you say? Not bad at all!
Running Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) on Intel’s x86 architecture, the unique project promises to be fast and responsive as you enjoy the same apps you”ve gotten yourselves used to on your smartphone or tablet, while being used as a coffee table, featuring a larger screen format and allowing for multi-user, multi-touch, big screen application usage and development.
The Android version of the Platform 46 Coffee Table will go on sale later this year, starting at US$7,000. Ideum is also planning on offering more Android versions of its devices, and will include dual-boot Android and Windows 8 systems. Check out the video below and see it this is all worth the cash!
I’d buy one, if I knew it would survive one of my friends putting their feet up on it…and if I had money to waste on a giant coffee table.
