OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) — A company in Baltimore has created "bumper tables" designed to keep people 6 feet from each other while eating and talking in social settings amid the coronavirus pandemic.
News outlets report the inflated tube tables created by Revolution Event Design & Production were debuted at a restaurant in Ocean City, Maryland, on Saturday.
The tables are designed with a hole in the middle to accommodate people around 4 to 6 feet tall.
Participants can then move themselves around using the wheels attached to the bottom of the table.
The company's CEO says the tables are a fun way to maintain distance and still enjoy social settings.
