Intelligent Coffee Maker Reads Your Mind

The Intelligent Coffee Machine uses artificial intelligence (AI) to monitoring coffee drinking patterns and then whipping up the perfect cuppa joe for each individual person.

And of course the machine will be wired so a simple phone call can alert it to your latest desire, and a hot cup will be waiting for you when you wake up or return home.

Implications - The big question is, how will the coffee maker know which type of coffee you want? The company has yet to answer that question given the secrecy of the project, but it's hinted that it has something to do with GPS tracking or existing RFID technology. Either way, no one will say that no barista can make them a proper coffee ever again if the Intelligent Coffee Machine comes into fruition.
