Designers In oh Yoo & Bong yup Song of the Metatrend Institute have developed a concept idea for a coffee machine that is controlled by a mobile phone.
The concept - as an introduction to the idea of personalised self-service devices - uses mobile phones to store the users personal preferences which can then be used on vending machines and similar.
The coffee machine also uses QR code enabled coffee packs which are linked to music downloads that can either be played as the coffee is made, or downloaded to the mobile phone as it is docked into the espresso maker.
