The Sony Fusion Computer Coffee Table
We are all familiar with the sleek and high tech look of all of Sony’s latest gadgets and computer creations, but furniture? Who knew? Fusing together technology with functional furniture may be Sony’s best idea yet. This attractive, yet highly techy furniture piece doubles as a coffee table and computer station. With just the push of a button located on the side of the table, the device opens up, and out pops a computer screen with a lighted touch screen keyboard. Once you finish using the computer, simply press the button again and the screen closes, and the computer goes back to being a coffee table. Unbelievable but true. An awesome housewarming gift for anyone who can’t function too far from their favorite tech devices.

This chair was conceived by Inhabitant, a company devoted to creating innovative and appealing designs which are environmentally smart, leading to longer sustainability of our earth and resources. When you take a look at the binary circuit chair you will notice that every part of this chair has been created from recycled materials. The cushion covering Inhabitant’s Binary Chair has been woven out of wide computer ribbon cables. The structure of the chair has been constructed from outdated industrial printers and computers which have been disassembled and riveted together.
