Instead of cozying up next to the fireplace to keep warm on a cold Winter’s night, in Japan you can simply have a seat at the dining room table. As long as it’s this particular table from Hidakagu which features a 360 watt infrared heater underneath that’s specifically designed to warm a diner’s legs and lower torso, not the food on the table. According to InventorSpot, the table was inspired by traditional Japanese ‘kotatsu’ which is a low table/blanket/heater combination that isn’t designed for dining. So this table takes that concept and makes it usable for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
