A new Japanese product would make an interesting gaming table.
The Memodesk is a basically a table with a huge notepad for a surface, a bit like a horizontal flip-chart. Now if it could be pre-printed with 5′ squares scaled for 28mm it would make a great battle mat. At the end of every combat or session the top sheet can be ripped off and placed on the wall. Leaving players and GMs with a permanent record of campaign.
It also makes a great surface for scribbling notes on. Ideal for a Call of Cthulhu or similar investigation type campaign where it can be hard to keep track of all the information players discover.
