The Zipwhip Textspresso Coffee Maker Takes Java Orders via Text

The Zipwhip Textspresso coffee maker speeds up the process of getting that first -- or tenth, depending on your caffeine intake -- cup of Joe. The machine was originally created to test out the Seattle company's cloud texting program, which allows SMS messages to be transmitted between an Android device and a computer.

If one is on their way to the office or out for a lunch break, all they need do is type in their order and text it to the coffee machine, which will brew it up for them and have it hot and ready when they arrive. There is also a plan in the works to install a printer in the machine that prints out the name of the person in need of a coffee fix on edible paper onto the top of the hot drink.
