Some of the ones we have reported on in recent times include the speakers in your sneakers, the handheld retro SNES console and the one that has the most in common with is the Apple iPhone iTable dock.

Today we have another device to report on, it’s made by Ideum and it’s a multitouch table. Ideum has made a simply astonishing device with some rather impressive specifications. We learned of this amazing table through Slashgear’s Rue Liu, he says that if you are in the market for a new desk or table that before you head on down to your local furniture store stop and have a peek at this guy.

It’s the MT55 HD, it’s a 55” multitouch screen at a resolution of 1920×1080. The display is made with hardened and tempered glass but there are a few other things that may be of interest to you, it has a Bose sound system built into its pedestal design to keep the actual table top screen at a mere 3” thick.

Also included in the tower is an HP system with some pretty impressive specs that we learned of from the Ideum official website. It has dual 250GB SATA hard drives, an Intel Quad Core i7 processor with 4GB of RAM and an NVIDIA Quadro 600 PCI video card. It also has all the basic connectivity of WiFi, Bluetooth, Ethernet and USB 2.0 ports as well as HDMI out.
