Dual Arcade Coffee Table

Uh, gadgets! I love new things that propose new fun experiences. What I didn’t know was that now some of these entertaining devices can be properly called furniture.  This new product I’m showing you today is called The Dual Arcade Table and it was conceived by the British company Surface Tension. The idea is quite simple but ingenious somehow because nobody combined a coffee table and arcade games in this way. Do not draw your conclusions, because if haven’t heard it all yet.

The “furniture part” is made from an extremely high quality veneer with a top made of 6mm super durable dark glass. Beneath that there is the “entertainment part” that consists of a 19” screen with marvelous wide viewing angles so the entire family can assist or directly participate to your little “Sunday morning coffee”.  The entire thing is hand build and for that reason there is a high degree of customization that includes various games, controls, multi-player options.

For instance the multi-player controls can be side by side, for games that require team work or face to face, for the famous battles that involve dominating or killing your adversary. It has though only one downsize; its price. In the UK the unit is sold for a price between 1999 and 3300 pounds, in US dollars the price is pretty steep, from 3000 to 5000. So unless you really like the idea and you are a huge fan of the latest trends, gadgets and arcade games I don’t find this very accessible. Its only up to you to decide.
