You heard it here first: The next trend in home media gadgets will be on the dinner table.

It started in Japan a few months ago with the " Supper Sound System ," which hides speakers and other media gear in fake bottles, cups, and other dinnerware. Now, URBoom has modified its "Boom" system to include a Chinese vase that houses a 25-watt subwoofer to complement its 2.1 speakers, according to Shiny Shiny.

We're already anticipating the next addition, which seems inevitable: an LCD dinner plate.
