Mobile World Congress 2014: Hands-on with Qualcomm's Wi-Fi coffee machine

1:31 /

The caffeinated concept gadget is hooked up to a Qualcomm chip, and can be controlled via a tablet.

Hello. I'm Luke Westaway with CNET here at Qualcomm Standard Mobile Worold Congress 2013 taking a look at something that caffeine fans will really enjoy. It's a tablet and smart phone controlled coffee machine. Okay, so here is how it works. This coffee maker is hooked up to a Qualcomm 4100 Atheros chip and then all you need to do is hold the tablet using a camera in front of the coffee machine, it will then identify that that's using the Vuforia augmented reality technology and then you will get this tablet into face here which you can use to control the kind of coffee you want. You can set the time that it sets to brew. You can choose regular or strong then you press brew and that signal is sent to the coffee machine. Yu can even get a separate notification popping up on a different tablet, letting you know when your brew is ready. It's a very cool stuff, but here's the bad news. This isn't an actual product it's gonna be shipping. It's just a concept that Qualcomm's whipped up to show how you can connect physical devices in your home to the connected devices. You've got smart phones, tablets, that sorts of thing. A couple of other applications we've seen that you could choose the technology for is controlling an alarm clock or a television. The whole system is built on Qualcomm's Alljoyn open source software, which is actually going to be shipping with a variety of Qualcomm chips later in the year. So if you really wanted, you could get a hold of that chip and try and build something like this for yourself. I'm Luke Westaway with CNET. Suddenly in neet of caffeine here Qualcomm's Standard Mobile World Congress 2013.
