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.
