The coffee table is an important piece of home furniture. Typically displayed in the living room, a coffee table is a place where people sit around to watch TV, to chat, and to hang out, so while it should look pleasing aesthetically, it should also be functional. Enter the Sobro which is basically a very functional and very hi-tech coffee table.

On the surface the Sobro looks like a very standard coffee table. However it is more than just a coffee table because it comes with a refrigerated drawer where you can stash beverages or snacks, and there are also built-in Bluetooth speakers, charging ports, LED lights, and more, which basically turns your coffee table into an entertainment device of sorts.

Not only does it keep your drinks cold, but the charging ports also means that you don’t need to go very far to charge your mobile devices. The speakers will also allow you to pair it with your laptop or smartphone to enjoy movies on, or maybe even your TV if it allows. There are also touch controls built into the table so it maintains its sleek design.

Unfortunately such a device does not come cheap at a price of $699. However its creators are claiming that the price of $699 is 53% off the retail price when it does go on sale, so if you want to save yourself some money, then head on over to its Indiegogo page and pledge your support.
