Ok first off this is about seeking input on whether you would 'want' the item, so your income level, your ability to afford it today, right now, is not the issue I want to investigate. What I want to know is, if it was on sale, would you be 'man I want to get one of those'. Here's the concept It's a piece of actual furniture. Not a console like a PS3 is. Not a TV which is just an appliance ON a piece of furniture. The item will look largely like a coffee table with a TV built into the top designed to be looked down upon. It will run software like a computer would, but would possess the ability to run games like a console would. In other words, you could load programs into it the same way you do a computer, and play games on it the same way you might a console machine ie you insert a game disc and just play the game. I'm looking for a device to be created, that any member of the family could enjoy using ideally. Dad gets to play some great Chess games on it with really cool 3d pieces. Mom gets to play fun board games on it when company visits. Your sister can play on it and enjoy some atypical girl friendly game. Who knows, she might like the same games her brother does. The boys in the family can play on it and likely would enjoy more than just cliche video games. I'm thinking of table top miniatures games without needing the miniatures, or all the terrain pieces or the mess. Just the fun of the game all in nice colourful graphics. Then there is role games which would benefit from this concept. All of which can be made possible of having an internet option. Picture being able to go online, an viewing a truly great visual experience with a screen you can manipulate with your hands. I also know of uses for wargames based on board games that could enjoy this. Anything made for a Nintendo could function on this. You could enjoy having friends present and using this, or connect to others online and interact with them on theirs. All the fun of a board game, none of the mess. I happen to know the software exists. The hardware already exists. it's just that no one has yet asked for anyone to make it such that it can satisfy the whole family at the same time, not just isolated portions. Virtual table tops are nothing new. But until someone wants it made, it won't get made. So, would you want it made is the question? Would you enjoy any of the above mentioned options?
