The New York Times' Kitchen Table of the Future

bughunter writes "Matt Boggie, The Times Co.'s Media & Technology Strategist for R&D, demonstrates the Times' screen-top version of a kitchen table. It's based on Microsoft's Surface technology, modified by the Times' R&D Lab to create a Times-oriented user experience that reimagines the old "around the breakfast table" reading of the paper. The prototypes on display at the R&D Lab consider how news can be used, in particular, in the home, woven into the intimate contexts of the morning coffee."

My prediction for future kitchen tables - Most of them will be made of wood and will be wireless (because wood doesn't need wires).
