When families get together, it seems that most everyone ends up in the kitchen. Maybe it’s because that’s where the food is, but CorkNet will give people another reason to gather there — especially if table tennis is the family passion. The cork wedges work as a heat absorption item for hot pots and pans, and when the meal is over, doubles as the net for table tennis right at the kitchen table. While a person can choose to easily store it or transport it anywhere, a cork net may mean more effort to retrieve those “net balls.” But then that’s what kids are for, right? Backers can get theirs for £20, with an expected delivery of October 2014.
