The first new dining table in over a decade has been invented by a Chinese university and is the first to incorporate a metal frame that has been designed to withstand impacts from the elements.
The new table, developed at Beijing Jiaotong University, was launched last week and will be used to test the new technology, which will be put to the test in a real-life environment.
“This new model is a key element of the new generation of sustainable technologies that will become increasingly relevant as the planet warms,” said Yang Yu, an associate professor of mechanical engineering at the university, according to The Wall Street Journal.
“It is a very exciting development in the development of these technologies.”
The new model features a metal base and metal sides that are made of a high-grade metal alloy.
A plastic housing is placed in front of the base, and a frame that is made of steel or copper, is sandwiched between the base and the base’s sides.
The base is covered with a transparent plastic to protect it from being damaged by the elements, according the WSJ.
This makes the new model even more durable and lightweight, with the researchers suggesting it can withstand temperatures up to 4.5 degrees Celsius.
“The new model can withstand more than 2.5 kilograms of force, which is equivalent to a 1.5-kilogram baseball bat,” Yang said.
“Our work will be to show that the new metal frame can withstand up to 12 kilograms of the force.
The frame is a lightweight, lightweight alloy made of metal alloy, which has a very high strength and hardness,” Yang added.
The researchers also claim that the frame’s shape also helps the table withstand impacts.
The team hopes that the materials and design will be adopted to make new types of metal dining tables, according Tech Insider.
The first model of the model was created by a group of students at the Beijing Jaiwen University, and it will be tested out in the real world.
The students hope to develop a more practical version of the technology in the next few years.
The model was first tested out on a model of a typical dining table made by the National Science Foundation, but it was not a real model.
“We are trying to find out whether the new material is strong enough to withstand a real world impact,” said Li Jia, the senior scientist of the research team.
“If it is, we will be able to design a model that is stronger and more durable,” she added.
