While it’s not exactly the multi-touch Mac that people have been clamoring for Apple to make, Savant Systems’ touchpanel coffee table might be the next best thing.
Their Mac-based ROSIE Coffee Table Touchpanel Controller provides a one-stop-shop interface to all your home entertainment needs. The centerpiece of the system is an embedded 40-inch touch sensitive flat panel monitor, countersunk into the top of the coffee table. The table provides a customizable interface for media playback functions as well as home automation controls all in one place. Savant’s applications include the ability to control a variety of devices ranging from multimedia streamers to networked security cameras.
The company plans on offering the system in a variety of different styles to blend in to a variety of decor. Pricing and a release date are not available at this time.
