Nottage’s G-1 pool table is the first-ever billiard table with a transparent top.

The table functions just like traditional tables because of its clear & patented “Vitrik” surface, a thin film applied to the glass that provides resistance to rolling balls, similar to what you’d find with the felt-lined models.

Now, if I were an expert pool player, I might worry this ultra-modern design would cramp my sharky ways, but it’s made to mimic traditional tables.

The balls are said to roll at speeds similar to slate/cloth models and the table size, balls, cues, pockets & bumpers are all built to international standards.

A few more interesting factoids:

  • Table top is made of 15mm(0.6”) thick toughened glass, which is up to 6x stronger than regular glass
  • Unlike wood frames, the G-1′s steel and aluminium frame resists warping, sagging and isn’t affected by humidity
  • Table top comes in a variety of colours and tints, as well as transparent, frosted (even mirrored!) finishes
  • Comes with an Accessory kit that includes a triangle, 2.25” balls, 2 matching silver cues and a bridge stick
  • And now, the kicker. Price tag: a cool AUS $39,900.00 (about $30K USD)

    Looks like dad might have to settle for another ho-hum tie this Father’s Day…
