When King Arthur gathered his Knights around his famous round table to plan their next adventure they may have enjoyed wine, song and feasts brought to the table by local serving wenches!
The round table of tomorrow is a fully interactive, multi-purpose appliance that facilitates the sustenance of the average family unit!
