Kudos to the design team at the UK-based firm Freshwest for putting a fresh, humorous spin on the concept of what a pool table should be. What they have developed is actually a coffee table constructed out of 50mm acrylic that reflects and refracts light "in such a way that it resembled the depth and hue of an actual swimming [pool]." It even features a miniature diving board on one end to complete the effect. Unfortunately, there is no word on whether this will ever become available to the public. Seems like too good of an idea to remain in the prototype stage if you ask me.

I don't know about everyone else, but my first thought on seeing this was "Jesus Christ it would hurt like hell to bang my shins on that thing..."
