Borrowing from Microsoft's Surface concept, Canadian-based SMART Technologies has designed a multi-touch table designed specifically for the preschool to sixth grade primary educational sector. The SMART Table features a multi-touch-enabled, tabletop 27-inch screen, with an internal projection system and integrated PC. The idea behind the SMART Table is that it gets kids to collaborate with each other while solving problems and playing educational games with an interactive system.

"The SMART Table provides a learner-centric experience for small groups that allows students to select or move objects, draw or write on the screen simultaneously, and work together to find answers to preset questions."

When I think about my kids putting gum on this thing, I'm reminded of a quote:

"Have you ever just tried turning off the TV, sitting down with your kids, and hitting them?" - Bender

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
