  • Espresso Book Machine

    Id meant to post this a few months ago when I ran across it and spaced it out. Having nothing to do with coffee outside of its name it is none-the-less a pretty cool machine.

    What a treat! Although I want to see it hooked up to a decent colour laser printer instead of b&w.

    Id love a printed colour copy of that "All About Coffee".

      It can do color as well. Look at the cover it printed.

        I love the idea of a multi terabyte library in a vending machine, it would be awesome for airports and train stations if you could print out a copy from 1,000,000 titles in 5 minutes.

        A quick search located one in Melbourne (Angus & Robertson 360 Bourke Street) and I found a reference to Angus & Robertson saying that they hope to deploy 50 of them by the end of the year.
