Not unlike the Philips announcement posted here earlier, Hewlett Packard is also doing a touch-sensitive table for boardgaming (and other users).

Looks interesting. I have thought of doing something similar (but without the tough screen).

If you put an LCD under a coffee table (and cover it with a sheet of glass) with a computer under it you could use it like that (Win XP supports multiple mice and keyboards to control the one pointer and with cordless mice it becomes as easy as passing the dice).

or something like this:

Looks neat.

It seems to me like board and card games are finally becoming more mainstream. Popularity over them has increased over the past few years and will hopefully keep increasing. Shows like Poker are now being aired on ESPN with a fair amount of viewers. Also, according to the Chicago Tribune tables are now being found that can be easily switched; or already set up for gaming. Now mind you these are simple games such as Chess and/or checkers, but at least people might play more games.

Link to the resource.

I hope the HP one is somehow affordable, but i doubt it haha.

That projector thing though, Amazing! i'v pondered using a Flat Screen monitor face up with a cover, but the projector would be size-up-able.
And it looks so sciFi!
