Let’s be honest, our chances of having hoverboards and flying cars by 2015 (like we were promised by the Doc and Marty McFly…) aren’t great at this point. But while we haven’t quite advanced to a “Jetsons” lifestyle yet, there has been some headway in home technology. Several designers are making a push for transparent appliances that make small spaces look larger and add a cool, futuristic look to a room, much like the “ghost” furniture Briana Mowry blogged about around this time last year.

It makes us wonder if the transparent iPad will ever make its debut. A design for a virtually invisible tablet was revealed by digital artist Ricardo Afonso nearly a year ago, but Apple hasn’t officially said yea or nay. As long as none of the gadgets look like the gaudy see-through phone I had on my nightstand for most of the 90s, I’m a fan.

What do you think? Would you pay up for transparent tech?

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?
