What is it about projected-on tables that makes me all of a quiver? Is it the potential to brighten up a dreary meal by superimposing a luscious feast over the top of it? Or could it be the prank potential of displaying a naughty little mouse running around the newspapers to scare the grandparents? Whatever it is, boy oh boy do I want one. Moritz Waldemeyer, a name familiar to anyone who knows him, is the man behind this LED projected roulette table, where people can place bets on an otherwise ordinary work-surface.
Though currently just a prototype, there’s obviously plenty of scope for underground gambling dens in places where such money-risking is illegal. As soon as you get raided, a simple yank of some circuit-breakers and you’re running a classy, dimly-lit bistro with no sign of roulette beyond the stacks of chips. And you could just pretend to eat those, couldn’t you.
