Coffee maker from the future
10 November, 2009 | Web design
Coffee lovers will either hate or love this product... The Speak n' Brew by Primula lets users talk to their coffee maker as if they were in a knight rider episode. Unfortunately this coffee maker will not be giving smart-ass comments back to you, just instant coffee.
The coffee maker has a dishwasher safe plastic filter, you can remove the decanter during brewing and estate agents can also set the time via voice commands.
A good feature is that you can pre-set for coffee maker so that it will make coffee at a particular time. Perfect for estate agents in a routine!
If you don't fancy talking to the coffee maker, you can always manually set it, but then what is the point of having a talking coffee maker?
One article suggested that coffee maker could be chattier. 'This is going to be a great day!" or "Go get them, Slugger". Do you really want such an upbeat coffee-maker in the morning? We're not so sure... Let us know on our Facebook fan page or Twitter profile.
Troy Stanley, CTO of Resource Techniques comments, 'A coffee maker that makes cups of coffee at pre-set times is a great feature, but a coffee maker that gives you the choice of tea, Americano coffee, cappuccino, espresso while also cooking a fry-up would be better!'
'I wouldn't be surprised if agents will be able to e-mail their coffee maker through the web. Design will then allow it to then produce the coffee without estate agents getting out of their seat!' - Troy Stanley.
