Now you can play pool on your boat, even in the roughest sea conditions, thanks to Data Respons’ STable pool table, dubbed the “world’s first and only seaworthy pool table” by the manufacturer.
STable is based on the general Marine Stabilized Platform (MSP) technology developed by Data Respons which provides a flat surface that virtually eliminates acceleration caused by roll and pitch movements. According to the company, “the platform’s movements are computed as a function of the ship’s movements, which are partly measured and partly computed by the STable control system. The suspension is designed to allow nearly frictionless movements in pitch and roll axes, while other movements are locked.”
There are seven-, eight-, and nine-foot models to choose from, and the exterior woodwork can be specified and designed to suit individual customer’s needs and tastes. Call for pricing.
The company also has a line of stabilized hot tubs, wine cabinets, and beds.
