Love reading your newspaper around the kitchen table at breakfast? How about reading your newspaper on the kitchen table at breakfast? That’s the idea that The New York Times Company’s R&D Lab is developing right now. You won’t believe this demo video!

It’s like having a giant touchscreen smartphone as your tabletop, plus some added slickness for this context, like the ability to share articles with other family members sitting at the table. The table even detects when items are placed on it, which leads to some cheeky advertising (like a Starbucks ad cleverly popping up underneath the bottom of your coffee mug).  Would you love a high-tech table like this? Or do you prefer your Kitchen Table Version 1.0?
