Saporiti Italia's Sedna_K
Kitchen island beautifully takes advantage Corian's transparent quality to merge an integrated display and information system into their futuristic kitchen island concept designed by Marti Guixé. Just imagine having recipes displayed prominently ontop of a surface which doesn't require worry of spills or damage to a laptop (we're always worried about knocking over our laptop in our small kitchen), or one that can display incoming emails or transmitted video from the door or phone so you don't have to leave your kitchen tasks...
As the kitchen becomes more of a haven for technological solutions and resources (we still use recipe books, but equally refer to online resources), it will be solutions like this wired countertop that will become more common in average households. Kitchen PCs are increasingly in the home cook's toolbox of resources, but as cooks who already drag their laptop back and forth from the home office to the kitchen, we would surely welcome this sort of solution specifically designed with kitchen tasks and demand in mind.
