Coffee tables can be as simple as the ones you pick up from Ikea, or they can be extremely high tech as seen in the form of the Integrated Technology Coffee Table. This concept from designer Joseph Reed is fitted with USB and serial ports, electrical outlets and an iPod dock to boot. Hmmm, do you dock the iPod just to charge it, or does it boast internal speakers as well so that audio can be played back right there and then for instant living room entertainment for your guests? No word on pricing, but it has upbeat white enamel and orange translucent acrylic colors to spruce up your home.
