From a small toy to something less likely to fit into your pocket - and guaranteed to make more of a dent in your pocket-book. The Nottage Design G-1 is a glass-topped pool table which promises a "floating on air" feel to the balls thanks to a patented resin coating to the glass, meaning there's resistance as you'd get with traditional felt.

What you also get is a non-traditional appearance, with various glass color and frosting options available. The ball-return mechanism has been integrated into the table's stand, and it uses BCA-specification pockets and K-66 bumpers. Craig Nottage, who founded the company, came up with the design as part of his final year project for an Industrial Design course in Australia.
Now full-sized pool tables aren't cheap to begin with, but when you start throwing in non-traditional designs, custom finishes and the like, you're looking at something even more expensive. The Nottage G-1 retails for around AU$39,900 ($25,150), and that's before you start making special requests.
