Surface Tension Arcade Tables

arcadeheaven May 13, 2007 0

Well, this kind of makes my conversion project seem even more of a joke (I still haven’t progressed beyond ordering a tiny TFT screen). A welcome forum visitor has pointed us to their site, Surface Tension from which they sell the most incredible Arcade “Coffee” Tables.

 These have to be some of the sleekest and most beautiful tables I have seen. I love the brushed  control panels (They look like they can be retracted into the cabinet). ALso nice to see quality arcade comoponents being used like Sanwa Joysticks.

With the screen off it looks like a great metal and glass contemporary coffee table but with the power on all your home arcade dreams can come true!



 Hardware specs include:

  • Intel® Pentium Core 2 Duo
  • 160GB hard disk
  • 4 USB 2.0/1.1 ports for plug & play capability
  • RJ45 Ethernet 10/100Mb connector
  • 802.11g wireless network adaptor
  • 1GB Ram
  • 19″ LCD TFT
  • DVI-D output
  • Integrated DVD-ROM/CD-RW drive
  • Internal amplifier and speakers
  • Apple Airport Express for wireless music streaming from Apple iTunes
  • Compact wireless keyboard with trackball
  • Sanwa joysticks
  • Happ arcade buttons and illuminated trackball

Available in three different finishes these babies are hand made to order which kind of justifies the high price and the 6 week delivery lead time. Now if only I could presuade my “other half”……………

To be honest I think I have much more of a chance of having one of these in our living room than a deluxe cockpit version of Firefox that I have been chasing down for years!

If you need anyone to Beta test any new designs SurfaceTension, just let me know 😉
