No need to learn latte design with this $1,000 machine that prints out costumizable art for you! It’s taking the caffeine pick-me-up to the next level...amiright?
Let your barista know what you want and they can choose from a variety of imprints over the machine’s WiFi interface. OR you can also create your own text, or customize your own design with a smartphone app. The 3D printer then takes your design and “ink-jet” prints coffee extracted from a “Ripple Pod.”
Essentially it’s like a photograph printed onto your latte.
The video is actually pretty darn cute. And after Starbucks revolutionized the coffee community culture the latte art market was bound to be turned into a social art experiment. This machine pushes the social coffee shop to the next level. The art takes no artistic skill though, so it’s a little less impressive than the skill barista.
But who wouldn’t want to have a little Miley in the morning? I say yes to this cool machine any day.
This machine really is cool. I wonder if there's any cafes that still have it out there. Also, true story, one of my friends made a complaint that Starbucks doesn't do latte art (back when I used to work there), so when I went into work the next day, I drew a picture of him on top of a cappuccino with caramel sauce and chocolate shavings. It was hoooorribly messy and inaccurate, but hey, who said we can't art?!
So cool!! I love how 3D printing is changing our world :)
Pics or it didn’t happen! haha Jk. You should pitch that to the designers of the machine...Caramel flavored pictures would be the best! @danidee
Completely! I love how fun it can be too...especially with this example @allischaaff
