What if we texted in a cloud (of coffee foam)?
Zipwhip is a Seattle, Washington-based startup specializing in cloud texting—sending phone-less texts via your computer. Zipwhip isn’t in the business of making coffee machines, but they’ve created an amazing prototype to show off their software and demonstrate how cloud texting can revolutionize everyday life. Not only does their espresso machine receive and prepare coffee orders via text, it also lets you identify your drink by “printing” the last three digits of your phone number with edible ink on the foam. Here comes textpresso! The Internet of Things has only just begun.
