IKEA Made a Table That Forces You to Put Down Your Smartphone

We're guessing this one isn't going into mass production anytime soon, but IKEA Taiwan produced this fun little video featuring a specially designed table with an embedded hotplate.

The other twist is that the phone area is not hot enough to melt the phones, apparently.
