The Pong table is a dining table that doubles as a LED Pong game. This is like a tabletop version of a videogame version of table tennis. The table works by integrating 2500 LEDs into the table top that shine through the corian surface. Touchpad lets you move your virtual paddle back and forth to bounce the virtual ball. When the game is switched off, the integrated technology disappears, leaving a clean table behind.

The roulette table shown below also follows the same principle.
