Beer pong has hit colorful new heights with the high-tech Penumbra Tables, equipped with LED lights and the ability to make balls hover. The interactive tables feature a surface that emits streams of air so that balls are suspended over the table between rounds. Penumbra Tables also feature lights with sensors that illuminate where cups are and light up around them to visualize all possible re-racks.

For the Penumbra Tables cup sensors, a microprocessor takes readings hundreds of times per second and then lights up around the cups that are on the table. The sensors also make the lights illuminate to show all possible re-racks throughout the game.

When each ball is not in use, it hovers above the table on either end with the help of high-speed fans and a custom-designed LED lit funnel. Eight emitters and two sensors in each funnel work to sense the ball as it hovers over the table. The air streams come on when a ball or hand is placed over the funnel.
