This is the kind of product that blends-in with the aesthetics of your home. It drops slowly and steadily into the base and, with the push of a button, rises back up in about 10 seconds.
Samsung Space Monitor
This offering from Samsung aims to make the experience of people working in offices better, and add value. It is easy to set up and adjust, and when you are not using it, it is simple to push back and store it flat against the wall. It has a unique built-in space saving solution, a minimalist fully integrated arm. You can clamp it to the desk and free up desk space.

The machine ferments, carbonates, ages and serves beer automatically. You can make up to five litres of beer in one go.
