Ford Motor Co. has announced it patented a retractable poker table – airbag included – for use in its self-driving cars.

From Automotive News:

The idea? Since a driver wouldn't need to pay attention to the road, seats could be configured to face inward around a table that passengers could use to eat, play a card game or type on a laptop.

"There remains an opportunity to design vehicle amenities for the occupants that takes into account the reduced operation monitoring provided by the autonomous vehicle," the patent application said.

The poker table will be able to retract into the floor of either a body-on-frame or unibody self-driving vehicles.
