$5000 Coffee Table Creates Zen Garden Sand Designs
Here's a coffee table we never would have imagined could exist 10 years ago. The body of the table encapsulates electronics and robotics, that sculpt geometric patterns and images into a field of microscopic silicone beads beneath a glass top. The effect is mesmerizing and magical; it is truly Zen-like to watch ever-changing patterns and images appear in the sand.
Total price for a coffee table table sponsorship is at $5000, and you can get other smaller versions as well. We'll have to wait and see how well this Kickstarter project turns out before plopping down 5k.
- Constructed from organically grown FSC certified renewable bamboo, which is available in several different styles
- The glass top is extremely strong tempered glass, 5/16" thick, as is similar to the high-strength glass used in store windows
- Comes with an SD card containing programs for sculpting patterns into the sand
- A dimmer switch controls the brightness of the built-in lighting
- An optional 3G modem can be built into your table to receive new programs for sculpting via the cellphone network, along with a service plan subscription that will push new designs to the table as they are created
- Control the table from your smartphone. With the 3G modem option installed, you can download the iPhone/Android app which we are currently developing and play a compendium of classic games, or send commands via text message to your tables dedicated phone number
- Connect a USB cable to your table, if desired, to send commands directly to the table from your computer, rather than programs being automatically loaded in sequence from the SD card
