Microsoft Surface - Single Serve Coffee Table Computing

Microsoft launched the Microsoft Surface just about 2 years ago, but we recently found out these coffee tables of the future are now available. That's right - you can now order via the Microsoft Surface web site a coffee table that we can only imagine costs more than your current one. Not sure how spill proof these coffee tables are, but if we ever get one we think we might put our coffee on the end table instead.

Case Folding Coffee Table - Coffee Table To Go

large-case coffee table Nat.jpg

Portability in coffee tables has not existed until now - we give you the Case Folding Coffee Table. The table folds itself into a case when not in use and is made of easy open/close birch wood pieces each spring loaded with locking hinges. It can take loads of up to 100 lbs, and is handmade in California. A big thanks to Beth for sending this in.

Unified Coffee Dining Table


We often want our coffee table to do just about everything food related because we eat, drink, and sometimes sleep near it. The Unified Dining Table designed by Min Hoo Park features a tray with built-in plates, cups, a vase, and a candelabra so you can have a little dinner, then put your coffee on the flat coffee table top by flipping over the dining area.

It's Coffee Table Friday Drop Style


We love the clean lines of this timeless coffee table. The Drop Coffee Table features a crystal clear glass top, with a hanging frosted glass shelf underneath. The tapered legs help to give you more space, and we really like the slender steel rods that hold the shelf in place.

iPhone Single Serve Coffee Table


Simply the coolest coffee table we've seen, and it was inspired by a previous reader-made iPod coffee table over at iLounge. iLounge readers Tuan Nguyen, Ken Thomas and their associates have created an iPhone coffee table. According to Nguyen, the table is "completely made of corrugate and glued together with white glue," and features removable, usable coasters built-in. Imagine the iPhone coffee table in your living room or den, and then imagine it actually working.

Four-way Pong Coffee Table - Play Your Way to More Caffeine


Witness a coffee table that took over two years to build - witness it! Yes, the Four-Way Pong coffee table is a thing of beauty, and sure to make you feel less boring when you sit down with those other coffee drinkers in your life. Unfortunately, this is a one of a kind piece, one that was a true labor of love, but we like the concept. We can see in the future Microsoft's Surface being used to make one of these in less time than 2 years, and hopefully even more games than just class Pong.

Periodic Coffee Table - Single Serve Coffee Elements


This might be the most interesting, and potentially dangerous single serve coffee table we've featured. This table contains actual samples of each of the 92 naturally-occurring elements - spooky.

"The remaining radioactive samples are supplied in the form of a small piece of low activity uranium or thorium bearing mineral in which a few atoms of the relevant element will exist."

That's right. Each of the cells actually contains the element itself - except for the elements that exist for only seconds. We can only imagine how much this coffee table would take over the hearts and minds of anyone you have over for a cup of single serve coffee. This table will set you back $8550, and also has a half-life of about 10,000 years.

Rynd Motion Coffee Table - Spin Your Single Serve Coffee

The Rynd Motion Coffee Table has two oval glass tops that swivel to multiple positions for ease of use, and ease of coffee spinning. A round, stable metal base with two stands support the twin glass pieces.

Why do we love this coffee table? We love the thought of spinning a hot cup of single serve coffee over to our couch mate, and then kicking back to watch a little TV.

Feng Shui Rectangular Coffee Table


The Feng Shui Rectangular Coffee Table works in harmony with a variety of decors, and coffee drinking habits. Beautifully balanced proportions, uncomplicated styling, and neutral lines lend a sense of simplicity to the understated to this coffee table. We're really excited to be able to buy "Feng Shui" in a coffee table, thus fixing our rather un-Feng Shui living room with one simply elegant purchase.

Paper Airplane Coffee Table


Looking to create a runway for your single serve coffee drinking habits? The Paper Airplane Coffee table is not made of paper, but it does indeed hold your coffee and morning paper. Comes in white only, but we would have preferred yellow ruled.
