Most people think it is so cool to see a leaf pattern in the coffee, but Ripple Maker takes it a step further. I don’t know if you can see it, but there is a dog in the coffee. That is, there is a picture of the dog in the coffee, and it is my dog.
So if you want a selfie in your sipper, you can do that. Now, I will be honest and say that actually see this machine in action, but as you can see from the video below, it has an LCD screen where you can program a picture. Also, there is an app for this so you can put an image photo, or message on a coffee top. This is the application available on iOS.
This is pretty amazing technology isn’t it? And, here’s some interesting information, I actually didn’t want to stop by this booth to see this machine in action. Hey, I have to be honest, because CES has like thousands gadgets.
So when my wife told me that she had visited, I was pretty amazed at the detail of the photo. And when I saw the picture, she was 1/3 finished. So in other words, that image will stay there for a few sips.
So yeah, this is pretty much a vanity thing, because most of us just put a cover on our coffee cup and call it good. However, it really is the coffee of the future. Just come up to Starbucks and say “give me a half-caff with picture of me on it”.
I don’t know if this Ripple Maker is available for private use, but for those that are professional coffee shoppers, it can cost $85 per month. It is available for $999 and you can read here for more information.
