CAMBRIDGE (CBS) – A Cambridge-based company is certain to receive its share of both praise and criticism for one of its latest inventions.

Outsmarting Technologies, which was founded by an MIT Mechanical Engineer, has created a high tech beer pong table called The Formidable Beer Pong Table.

The table, which was designed for a fraternity at the school, has four built-in washing mechanisms to sanitize the ping pong balls and a gutter collection system to collect run-off from table.

As a YouTube video shows, the waterproof table and frame can handle the impact of a 215 lb. person landing on it.

According to Outsmarting Technologies, the table cost about $1,200. It took a week-and-a-half to plan and build.
