That low table in the middle of your room is ripe for revolution.
It does a decent enough job in its basic form but it could try harder. Why not fit it with a beer/wine cooler? Some handy charging points would also be awesome. While we’re at it, how about some proper power points for our laptops? Nice.
Sobro smart coffee table
The Sobro coffee table packs in all those ideas, and more.
I’ve never actually been this excited about a table before.
They have added a refrigerated drawer to hold drinks – handy for those box set marathons or sporting events such as the Grand Prix. That alone is pretty cool, but it doesn’t stop there.
It also comes with integrated Bluetooth speakers, a pair of USB charging ports, and two power ports for your connected lifestyle. Use it to charge your phone while you work, or connect your telly to the speakers and enjoy better sound quality.
The only downside I can see is that you will have to somehow route some power to it. But, where there’s a will…
Sobro price and availability
This isn’t quite on the market yet. It’s currently running its crowdfunding campaign and you can pre-order one for $629.
They have easily met their funding goals (1203% when this was published) and it’s currently expected to ship in September.
