Gizmag reports that the table is made from aluminum, steel and reclaimed cedar wood, with a high pressure laminate table top. An interactive LED ring display in front of each seat lights up to indicate the amount of power being generated, which can be used for charging mobile devices and gadgets. The system can generate around 230Vac/30Watts of output per seat.
