This 'Smart Table' Can Cook Your Food, Chill Your Drinks And Charge Your Phone
What if there was a single surface that allowed you to conquer life's most common tasks all at once?
Cooking dinner, grabbing ice to cool your drink, frantically looking for your iPhone charger like a madman - these are just a few of the little tedious daily happenings we all have to deal with.
There are smartphones, smart cars, smart tortilla makers and now smart tables. Introducing the Smart Slab, a multipurpose table surface designed by SapienStone and Kram/Weisshaar, a Stockholm-based design firm.
According to Hypebeast, this table, fitted with a 6-millimeter-thick ceramic tile surface, allows you to cook, warm plates, chill drinks, and wirelessly charge your phone. Let's just say this thing is the future of kitchen surfaces.
The 154-pound Smart Slab is made up of five different technology components responsible for cooling, heating, cooking, touch sensing and induction-based charging.
If you were wondering when we'd finally get to toy around with Jetson-like futuristic gadgets in the comfort of our own homes, it's safe to say we're certainly getting there.
If Tesla's mind-boggling auto-pilot feature isn't a clear indication of that, the Smart Slab certainly is!
As of yet, there has been no word on if and when the table will go into production for consumer buying.
