Ripple Maker Lets You Put Any Image on Your Coffee

Ripple MakerOnce again, I am going to review a product that I saw at CES, but I just haven’t got around to writing about it. This is the Ripple Maker, and it does what it says in the title.

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 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.
