The Deceptor Ping-Pong Table is 3D-Printed for Futuristic Functionality

The Deceptor Ping-Pong Table certainly looks cool, but that isn't all that it has to offer. Examine the paddles closely, for instance, and you will discover great dimension in a game setup that's often quite flat. It may interest you to know that Janne Kyttanen had this table tennis equipment manufactured with 3D printing technology. Notice the multifaceted, matte surfaces that have been rendered with such perfect symmetry.

Although the trunk-like base of the ping pong table does have this geoform texture, the top is very smooth. Look at the paddles, however, and you'll notice unevenness around the edges. This encourages experimentation with trick shots. Even more impressive, the Deceptor Ping-Pong Table is designed to withstand the elements outside, and it has a wind-proof ball.
