Have you ever wanted a cool couch- or coffee-table? Something you're friends will be like "wow", that blends nicely into your existing room and that makes a nice comfy atmosphere? Too bad something like that isn't available readily made at IKEA or the like ... but hey, we can tinker it together ourselves!
That's what we thought when we started to plan that table. Another nice thing about it: It's extensible, you can always mod in a LED matrix and a matrix-cabinet and start displaying pixel art, a ticker or whatever you feel like ... but first you need the basic hardware, and thats what this post is about!
