Textspresso dials up coffee through texts
You will probably never buy Zipwhip's Textspresso coffee machine in any store -- a fact baldly posted on the company's Web site -- but that won't stop other appliance-makers from using the company's cloud-based texting platform to one day churn out cup after cup of custom-texted brews.
In fact, Zipwhip encourages such exploration by making the code it used open-source.
With that in mind, Zipwhip hand-delivered its Textspresso machine -- really a hacked De'Longhi espresso-maker -- to CNET headquarters to demonstrate the future of communicating with your caffeine. Here's how it works.
