When tabletop arcade manufacturer Retro-Tech makes a coffee table, it’s gotta do more than hold books on Famous Chateaus of the 18th Century and What Things Look Like From the Sky. It has to hold that stuff and piss off your home theater.
So they start with a 19″ touchscreen, add a Blu-ray drive with video out and a Microsoft keyboard and mouse to control is all. (And we’re pretty sure a PC is stuck in there too.) To round it out, 6mm of “toughened glass” protects the top, though we’re a bit confused if the touchscreen still works when covered. You can definitely see the arcade influence in the design, but we wish they’d gone a step or two further in incorporating the glossier elements of tabletop games. And would a splash of colour hurt anyone? Price TBA. [Retro-Tech via Ubergizmo]
