The Tablet Coffee Table
As if you thought we had enough tablets going around, now a new leap forward, The Coffee Table Tablet. - Do you think your family doesn’t spend enough time together? Most of the time, they are all using a separate PC or tablet? Well, your problems could be solved by a company called Lenovo. The Solution: a PC the size of a coffee table that works like a gigantic tablet and lets four people use it at once. It’s a 27-inch screen with the innards of a Windows 8 computer built into it, and it can stand up on a table.
But you can pick it up off the table, unhook the power cord and lay it flat for games of “Monopoly.” It’s big enough to fit four people around it, and the screen can respond to ten fingers touching it at the same time.
As a tablet, it’s huge!! The screen is the size of eight iPads stitched together, and it weighs 15 pounds. It’s almost as homebound as a flat-panel TV.
The Table PC will include plastic “strikers” for “Air Hockey,” and joysticks that attach to the screen with suction cups for other games, including multiplayer shooter “Raiding Company.”
