The lift is designed to lift the top a few inches for dining, not open it

gadget without a market to me.

Somebody ought to clue in the furniture makers then. I've been to a
couple rather large furniture stores in the past few years looking around.
There are a surprising number of "coffee" tables like this floating
around. IF, and that's a big IF, you find yourself dining off snack
tables or balancing a plate on your lap while watching television, these
are just what you need.

So to just throw a new wrinkle on this, have you seen the tabletop lift
Rockler sells?

It opens up the table a new way.

Whilst I agree that it's a pretty neat idea, I thought that price tag was a
little steep for it.

I am sure that if you wanted, you could build something similar ... at a
fraction of the cost.

That's just my $0.02
