Robots Making Your Coffee?


They say that preparing food requires love and a human touch, but honestly, something as mechanical as making you a cup of coffee could surely be handled by a robot, couldn’t it? Think about the methodical approach to preparing a latte or a cappuccino, and the number of steps that could go wrong because of human error. The CafeX wants to do away with that by introducing robotic arms into the mix. Your coffee order becomes a line of code that the robot follows to the absolute T, and that means three things. A perfect cup every single time, no dealing with chatty baristas, and lastly, not worrying about having your name spelled wrong on the to-go cup.  CafeX’s revolutionary system doesn’t mechanize the coffee machine, but rather, replaces the barista with a capable robot. Enter your order into a kiosk (or even via the app) along with your name and payment details.

The robotic arm maneuvers the coffee machine, picks the glass up and puts your brew together, handling as many as three orders at the same time (working at a dizzying speed of two orders per minute). It can, with a great deal of dexterity, hold, stir, and even transport cups filled with hot liquid without spilling any of it, or burning itself. It then places the cup onto a platform which descends into a chamber that you can then put your hand into and collect the cup of coffee that’s been perfectly brewed to your liking. The biggest advantage? 24×7 coffee shops because you don’t have to worry about human labor. Also, no tips. The disadvantage? Less motivation to go to the coffee shop because the cute barista you were hitting on got replaced with a robotic arm. Although CafeX says there will always be a CafeX human staff-member on site to facilitate this customer-robot interaction.

What Is Pizzaoki?


Pastry hurling international dance icon Steve Aoki has decided to temporarily halt the on-stage cake throwing gimmick and pick up the dough roller. The 40-year superstar DJ/producer has just announced the opening of Pizzaoki in his hometown of Los Angeles. As the son of Benihana’s founder, who once told Yahoo Finance he has never received a penny from his father, the inventively named new restaurant seems like a fitting next move for the entrepreneurial mogul.

A themed restaurant in it’s conception, much like the theatrical Japanese chain started by his late father, Aoki says that customers will be able to enjoy quality pizza recipes named after his hit songs — for instance, a classic cheese dubbed “Just Hold On” or the “Mayhem,” a supreme with all the toppings. The new concept also relies heavily on technology for delivery, as Pizzaoki currently lacks a brick and mortar location. Customers can currently place orders through Postmates and Uber Eats.

Ayo… Wendy’s Got Beef?


Beef has long been almost essential an element of hip-hop as the it is to the fast food business but now, the two meanings have merged thanks to an inexplicable, yet ridiculously entertaining mixtape from none other than Wendy’s. That’s right, Wendy’s, the burger joint, the one that’s near-constantly bucking shots at their fry-slinging rivals on Twitter; they’ve taken all that Twitter beef, mashed down into a patty, and served up a hot, fresh helping of surprisingly deft lyrical goodness with We Beefin’?, and it’s honestly, pretty darn good.

In today’s society, it’s easy to forget about eating the right things. There’s often a time I’ll find myself making a sandwich and look to the fridge for inspiration, only to be greeted with empty shelves and a packet of ham…bleak. I may be lucky to have a bag of mixed salad leaves which have not held up. With the use of urban gardens, aeroponics, and hydroponics – healthy eating is now more accessible as ever.  The AeroGarden Harvest Touch set out to make sure big city living, with all of the hustle and bustle, doesn’t mean neglecting the importance of a balanced diet.

Diet isn’t the only importance regarding urban gardening, it’s a hugely important aspect in the future of sustainable farming.  The overall design for the indoor garden is warm and approachable. The form doesn’t threaten to dominate the interior layout/design of its environment. The indoor garden greets you with a large 360 open view space – which not only gives the impression of the garden taking up less space that one thinks but also giving the user a quick ‘one glance’ update on progress/growth.

AeroGarden’s Harvest Touch was designed to integrate seamlessly into a city dwelling environment, allowing anyone to grow their very own vegetables at home. The system is soil free and harnesses its growth through the use of 100 high power performance LED lights, enough for optimal growing conditions year round while sitting nicely on your countertop. There is an intuitive LCD display to help the user through every step of the way.
