This coffee table runs Android on 46-inch touchscreen

So you have seen Android powering smartphones, tablets, smartwatches, TVs, refrigerators, microwave ovens and what not. But did you ever imagine a coffee table which runs Google’s popular operating system?

Ideum and 3M have teamed up to create 32-inch and 46-inch Android coffee tables.

Wondering what use can you put these giant displays to? The demo video for one of the Android coffee tables shows Angry Birds being played in a larger than life fashion. They could also prove to be a great education tool, according to Ideum.

Officially dubbed the Platform Multitouch Coffee Table, it runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and has a 3.7GHz quad-core Intel i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, 500GB hard drive and water-resistant 1080p HD display.

A number of ports and wireless connectivity have also been built into the smart coffee table, including Ethernet, USB, DVI, VGA, HDMI, DP access ports, WiDi, 802.11 n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth.

“Native Android OS support expands the possibilities for our multi-touch tables giving developers new options and providing end customers new and dynamic software solutions,” stated Jim Spadaccini, CEO, Ideum.

“High-performance multi-touch Android applications are key in expanding the reach of 3M multi-touch systems and displays,” added Diego Romeu, Global Business Unit Manager, 3M Electronic Solutions Division.
