If you’ve grown fond of recent 3D printer developments, you may be interested in this Kickstarter project. Snapmaker is the all-metal 3D printer that lets the average user do just that, laser engraving, and CNC carving. The team currently has a prototype built and is looking for enough backers to speed up further development.

Remember that old game, Pong, from Atari? It’s been a while, but the team at the Table Pong Project has whipped up something that just might bring it back and into our daily lives. This project looks to be a rather futuristic approach to the classic game, where it is being brought from its digital form to a physical form. This Pong-infused coffee table includes the retro sounds and bouncing lights, and it maintains the same mechanics to stay true to the original gameplay. It’s not just any Pong-themed table, either, the Table Pong Project is officially licensed by Atari. It is meant for the home, the office, and even public bars.

What’s the magic behind all this? Well, the main component required to make the 2D movement illusion of the game possible, is magnets. The minimalistic design is aimed to bring back memories of the X generation, as it is a mixture of modern tech and arcade machines from the 80’s. As for the features, the table includes the Pong game, a digital clock, Bluetooth speakers, and 4 USB charger ports. To set it on stand by mode, close the custom design lids and you have a regular, neat and retro looking coffee table. The Table Pong Project plans to start shipping in November on Kickstarter, and you can pre-order it now for $1,100 (limited units) before it reaches $1,690 later this year.
