32 and 46 inch Android powered coffee tables coming later this year

Android Coffee Table

Two companies named Ideum and 3M have come together to launch coffee tables with a touchscreen powered by Android. These coffee tables will come in 32 and 46 inch configurations and will basically act as a large display with multitouch functions (and will act as a regular coffee table as well). These tables currently run Windows 8, but the Android version will be out later this year.

These coffee tables come with a 1080p resolution and support 60 point multitouch, so up to 6 people can simultaneously use the coffee table, which is a blessing for multiplayer gaming. Prices won’t be cheap though with the starting price expected to be around $6950. We’re not sure if there will be a lot of takers for these Android powered coffee tables, but it’s certainly a neat idea for large families.

The two variants feature 500GB of storage, 16GB of RAM and a 3.7 GHz Intel Core i7 quad core processor, so they are very well equipped in terms of hardware. Sadly, the Android variant is said to be running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, although this might change in time for the launch later this year. So who’s buying one?

Gadget Spotlight: Optoma PK301 Projector

If you’re in the market for a pico projector than Optoma is the first place I would look. Optoma has been an industry standard in projectors for nearly a decade, but long gone are the days of wheeling in the best projector to the conference room. Nowadays the pico projector is a must have for the presenter in the digital age. Optoma has some great pico projectors out there. We’ve been using and testing the PK301 for quite some time.

The Optoma PK301 Projector has some awesome features available. It can project movies from your Android device (through HDMI out), iPod, XBox, Hard Drive, or any computer. With a 120″ diagonal display, it has a great picture and sound quality and it’s so compact you can take it just about anywhere.  Imagine doing an elevator pitch, compete with slides right.
