The Pong table isn't for eating off, or is it?

Mortiz Waldemeyer has designed a white dining table that doubles-up as an interactive Pong playing surface. Apparently, the table has 2400 integrated LEDs and trackpads at either end, allowing gamers to bounce the ‘ball’ back and forth.

Of course, playing the game whilst the table’s laden with delicious food and glasses of wine probably isn’t a good idea.

The table is only a prototype at the moment and no plans to develop it commercially have been mentioned. So, for now, you’ll just have to make do with discreetly watching football on a handheld TV underneath the table.
