It can be difficult to start conversation among strangers, which is why RCA designer Thomas Urban Gardner has done his best to help “break the ice.” His unusual invention, the DeLighTable, incorporates pressure sensitive material and waterproofed electronics (which run on 12 volts of power), to transform boring tabletops into a palette of ultimate grooviness.

Ideal for bars, restaurants, and nightclubs, the surface illuminates when any glass object placed on it. People can draw or write a message on it, which fades away in seconds. DeLighTable can be ordered in the following formats: Coffee Table, Dining Table, Standing Table, Table Top Panel or Shelf Panel (custom inquiries are also welcome).
