You may not immediately guess that the Electrolux Memory is in fact a coffee machine. Its intriguing toadstool shape is slick and futuristic and expresses few clues about its function.

The flat circular top of WenYao Cai's invention is a palm scanner that you use to initiate your personalized brew. Once you've input your preferred settings for the first time, the Electrolux Memory Coffee Maker will acknowledge your identity and produce your perfect strength of java every single time.
