Ripple Maker can put your face in your coffee

by • January 14, 2016 • No Comments

It’s kinda really great when baristas draw little things like hearts or leaves in the foam on your cappuccino. There’s a accident, yet, which those creations may be going the way of cave paintings. This is for the reason Israeli startup Steam CC not long ago added its Ripple Maker, a machine which reproduces photos, text or other graphics on coffee foam.

The Ripple Maker was initially revealed last June, when it was revealed which Lufthansa airlines may be via the devices in its First and Business Class departure lounges. Last week at CES, yet, broader availability of the system was revealed – it can now be purchased by any business which serves coffee.

The machine combines 3D- and inkjet-printing technologies, along with replaceable “Ripple Pods” containing an extract turn it intod of Arabica and Robusta coffee beans. Users prepare foam-topped beverages as they usually may, and and so place the mug in the Ripple Maker. The machine and so raises the mug up to its print head, where the selected turn it into (known as a Ripple) is applied to the foam via the extract. The printing system takes 10 seconds.

Making use of an accompanying iOS/Android app, users can select of an online library of Ripples, plus they can turn it into creations of their own. Additionally, coffee shop costumers can send in a turn it into of their own, to a local Ripple Maker-equipped shop. This means which someone may get a coffee for a friend, for instance, with a picture of their face or a personalized greeting on it.

The Ripple Maker is priced starting at US$1,299, and is on the market with an $85/month service plan. Each Ripple Pod is reportedly great for of 1,000 Ripples – and no, they’e not refillable.

The machine can be seen in use, in the next video.
