Sometimes the kitchen is just too far away. Go on, you can admit it, too. Deliciousness may be residing just a few feet away in the form of a precooked meal, but the effort of drag yourself into the kitchen to get it is simply too great. Besides, there's a ball game on the tube.

Submitted as an entry into the Electrolux 2008 Design Lab contest, the concept cooktop is a flexible extension of the dinner table, designed to be used in any room in the house. The theme of this year's annual competition was the Internet generation, and how products will need to adapt to the diversity and complexity it represents.

Antoine Lebrun, a design student at L'Ecole de Design Nantes Atlantique, in France, created the adaptive cooking table appliance. He says:

"...My concept doesn't impose one way of doing things, but offers a maximum of possibilities for people to integrate it into their own lifestyles."

The Coox table is height adjustable, while casters provide mobility. The cooktop uses induction technology, and has three distinct heating areas. A warming area is also incorporated.

The Coox adaptive cooking table may be just the thing for the sports obsessed and the lazy alike. If only it existed.
