For those who have everything: The rev-->table

Making a replacement part should be an easy task because the rev-->table has a digital blueprint on its surface.

Furniture that’s really made to last shouldn’t be ready for the landfill when a single piece of it breaks. The rev-->table solves that problem by including on its surface a digital blueprint that’ll allow any shop with computer-controlled tools to crank out a replica part. The firm behind the table was founded by two MIT graduates who were tired of throwaway furnishings, so the main elements here are fashioned from solid oak and powder-coated steel. The design codes, which are etched onto an aluminum plate and can be read by any smartphone, represent the table’s Plan B for lasting forever. “It’s like a starfish growing back a lost leg, only less creepy.”
