Classy coffee tables are classy, but also boring. What they need is exactly what this one has: a cleverly-disguised set of professional arcade cabinet components.

The Arcane table, from Surface Tensions, looks at first glance to be a glass-topped coffee table. But there's a slide-out drawer in the side, which houses a very fetching controller setup (featuring Sanwa buttons) and even a trackball.

But where do you play? The thickened glass surface doubles as either a 19" or 26" LCD screen, on which you can play as many classic arcade games as the table's internal PC can hold.

For all this, you're looking at £3300/USD$5000, so yeah, likely not for most of you. Still, it's OK to dream!
