Android Cookin' Up Some Coffee, Thanks to Yanko Design

Chalk this one up in the weird column, but the pic to the left is an Android based espresso machine.  If you notice, the cups of coffee have the barcodes that we have come to know and love in the Android world.  The espresso machine can scan those, then, when you plug your Android powered handset into the phone dock, it will tell your handset to play music that matches the mood of the type of espresso you are making.

It is called the Appresso, and is created by Yanko Design.  You can check out the description on their site by clicking here.

No word on pricing as of yet, but I imagine a designer piece like this is not going to be cheap.  I would love to see one of these in a store one day to see how it all works.  Having weird stuff like this that is powered by Android is a sign that the platform is getting the recognition it deserves.  If you are a coffee lover and an Android lover, perhaps this is the coffee maker for you.
