Smart Table for a Smart Home

smart table

Let’s be honest? We’re immediately hooked the moment someone mentions the words: multi-functional! Efficient! Compact! Because these words imply a simpler, less complicated life.

Imagine a world where your phone could arrange your calendar? Or a world where you could carry around your internet connection in a small box? Or a way for you to shop online and get your desired items delivered on your doorstep?

It is good enough for a product to do something well. But what increases the value of such products for us is their versatility. For example, think about furniture that folds back into small niches?

What about furniture that can charge your phone without any wires or furniture that can play music as loud as you want and hold your cup of coffee!

You would call such furniture multi-functional, compact and efficient. We would call it the Smart Table. A table that makes your life easier while managing to look great in your living room.

Smart Table by i-Star – Our Pick

The best feature on this Smart Table from I-Star is the playback control. If your friend asked you to bring music to the party, what do you do? You probably emptied your music file in your phone or a USB and were ready to go. After that, you can just plug in the USB into the speaker or car listen to the playlist unfold. Shouldn’t there be a way to control the music without having to reach for your phone? It gets harder if you used a USB drive. With this Smart Table, you have buttons presented on the sides that allow you full control.

Two USB charging ports:

Picture a scenario where your friends come over for a group project. You need outlets to plug in your various devices. Okay, that’s fine because you can always manage to find at least two or three outlets in a room. Sure, you’re sitting a little further away from your friends but at least you’re online. But what about the latecomers and what about that one friend that can never remember to charge their phone! Part of the only reason they’re even here is that they need to charge their phone. And you can’t plug out your laptop, no way!

Getting more outlets for your house just for a group project does not seem feasible. What you can do is get this amazing table from I-Star. With its two USB ports to add to your outlets, this table has your charging needs covered.

Wireless Charging:

Most of us have probably pulled overtime on a project. The only way you’ll make it the next day to even hand in your project is if you wake up on time. But if you’re dead on your feet can you even be expected to remember where the charger is? On the other hand, if your phone isn’t charged how will your alarm wake you up?

What to do? Ignore your phone and head to bed? Or do you waste valuable sleeping time looking for the charger? You do neither. You place your phone on your wireless charging Smart Table and go to bed. That’s just how easy life can be if you make the right decisions.
