Make coffee without leaving the comfort of your bed? Sounds like something out of ‘The Jetsons’ to us.

Do you dread getting out of bed in the morning and having to press a button to get your morning coffee started? Nespresso has an app for that — a coffee machine that can be powered by your smartphone.

Nespresso’s newest coffee machine, the Prodigio, lets consumers remotely brew a cup of coffee with its very own app, so it’s ready whenever you feel like sauntering into the kitchen. The Prodigio even lets you schedule a specific pour time, monitor capsule stock, and receive maintenance alerts for technical issues with your machine.

"Prodigio is Nespresso's first connected machine, providing you a unique experience that combines coffee pleasure with additional connectivity benefits, uplifting your Nespresso experience," the company said in a statement.

But convenience certainly doesn’t come cheap. The new device, which was just released on Sur La Table is available for $249, whereas you can get a regular Nespresso machine for as little as $117 on Amazon.

With real products like the app-controlled coffeemaker, a Brita pitcher that automatically orders new filters, and a smart fridge that tells you when the milk has expired, it’s only a matter of time before we get our flying cars.
