The world has seen ideas for smart coolers, but how about a smart coffee table? Thanks to the $1,000 Storebound Sobro, that day my friends is at hand. According to Storebound, the Sobro isn't your ordinary piece of living room furniture. The Sobro plays music, charges laptops and phones, plus conceals a small refrigerator for cold beverages.

To provide audio the Sobro functions as a wireless Bluetooth speaker for phones, tablets, even HDTVs. It has numerous USB ports and AC outlets for filling up thirsty electric batteries as well. Literally the coolest of the Sobro's features is a small fridge tucked away inside its main drawer. It's designed to hold your favorite drink of choice.

The Sobro coffee table hides a fridge drawer and has charging ports.

Touch controls for the Sobro live on the table's top right-hand side corner. They command the table's audio playback and also activate its array of color shifting LED lights. Storebound expects the Sobro to ship by September 2017 for its full price of $1,000. You do have the option of preordering the coffee table as an Indiegogo backer for as little as $500.
