The Robotic Table: Changes Height By Itself!

The Robotic Table: Changes Height By Itself!

So this is the situation. There you are, at your coffee table, typing away. You're working on something and have decided to use the living room, instead of your office, because your living room is way more comfortable. The trouble is that your coffee table isn't really the right height to touch-type away. That's why I think that this table will work well, since it will adjust it's height thanks to the fancy mechanical legs it has underneath.

The Push-Up Table was created by UK designer Chris Murphy. Basically, it doesn't really walk around and such, but it does adjust its height, thanks to its futuristic pedestal-like legs. The top surface is made out of glass, enabling you to see the robotic mechanism in all its glory. The legs are articulated and made out of machined metal, that is supposed to be extremely precise. The legs allow the table to be raised or lowered depending on the situation.

We love the robotic look that this table has. It's perfect for a bunch of different rooms, from a coffee table to that extra table to hold your laptop. Since it's height-adjustable, you'll be able to get it at that perfect height, no matter what your stature is. Personally, I've always loved robots, so this is one great table. The only thing that's missing is a remote control and some movement to make it a fully mobile table, kind of like the Emperor's throne in Star Wars. Digressions aside, it looks pretty cool and the stark minimal design will work well in any loft or home with some modern decor. [via Designboom, photos by Paul Jacques]
