From the department of Innovations That Really Aren’t That Innovative comes a robotic arm that’s been customised and programmed to make a fresh pot of coffee — using a Keurig machine. That’s like building a robot designed to clean floors — by turning on a Roomba.
This particular minnovation comes from a company called FOCUS Integration, and in its defence, the JoeBot does more than just push the brew button on the Keurig. It can load in new capsules, swap out full and empty coffee cups, and even label the cardboard sleeve with a custom design. Now if it could only refill the Keurig’s water reservoir, which seems to be perpetually empty whenever you want a brew. [YouTube via Geekologie]
