At first glance, the DeLighTable from Thomas Gardner may seem like some high tech toy, using OLEDs, and touch sensitive screens or whatnot. But it isn't. The table, which allows you to create nifty visual effects by simply touching it, uses a rather simple, but elegantly implemented technique. An opaque liquid is sandwiched between a transparent plastic film and a light source. When touched, the liquid moves away and lets the light shine through. And just like that, you've got a very cool coffee table that will only have set you back ?1200.
