Most people think of Zen as a state of relaxation, and this invention can certainly provide that. Essentially, the Zen Table uses a robot to “rake” the sand and create spectacular patterns. Watching the Zen table in action is not only mesmerizing to watch, but also a superb engineering design. It’s spendy, but would be an incredible addition to an office lobby or restaurant.
The bottom portion of the table holds the robotics and electronics that sculpt the images in the “sand.” The sand is actually microscopic silicone beads under a glass tabletop of tempered glass. Buyers can even opt for a 3G modem installation that will allow for receiving software updates and even operate the table from your smartphone. Check out the full details.
