Bornrich: Forget the iPhone coffee table made by iLounge readers and the Table Connect for iPhone; here we have the amazing iTable from the house of Kyle Buckner Designs. Designed by Kyle Buckner, this fully handcrafted, motorized iTable is a complete entertainment system that lets you connect with the furniture. This unique coffee table features two aluminum-trimmed cup holders, which will light your drinks up with the touch of a button. On the front, there are four controls, LED on/off, Volume up & down and the motorization control. Each button is laser engraved and then hand-cut to fit on the control pad.
The user simply has to touch the metal buttons to activate each identified switch. When you touch both the volume up & down at the same time, you can mute the song playing on your iPhone 4. When you are in the mood to listen to the music, you just need to swipe your hands across the touch-sensitive controls. Another swipe stops the music, and the motorized sound bar glides right back down. This motorized sound bar comes equipped with eight high-end transducer speakers. Moreover, there is a 6″ down-firing subwoofer to enrich you with a quality sound experience.
The top of the iTable is a flat black surface with an almost scratchproof finish. This table is made for the iPhone 4, but is interchangeable upon request to fit your device. Kyle Buckner makes each iTable on request.
