Instead of using an expensive touchscreen like the table, there are other options like projecting an image and interacting with the imagery.
Given the multi-touch patents Apple is producing - I would guess that they are working on a portable screen larger than the iPhone, which I assume will eventually scale into something like Microsoft's Big A$$ Table.

Given that every table I've ever seen has a tendency to accumulate piles of paper, books, coffee mugs and loose change, I think that this might end up being a very expensive clutter magnet.
Good point. I hope it's spill-proof!
