This is really cool. I’m sure those of us with stationary kitchen islands wish we could scoot it out of the way now and then, but even then, where would we put it? This guy, using an iPhone app I don’t recognize, is controlling a lift in a utility room downstairs that lifts that kitchen island right up.
He appears to have some Flor units covering it up, but I bet you could rig up a system that doesn’t… you know, fall away like that. The best thing? No need to scrape crumbs off the surface. Just lower the table and sweep the room. Or, since you’re obviously living in the future, activate your swiffer robot.
