Breville: The Naked Espresso

A coffee with a tech twist.

Editor's Pick

To show off the features of Breville's latest espresso machine, the Dual Boiler, Australian agency Reborn combined art and science to make a perfect cup of coffee.

The agency hacked the machine and used an Arduino, flow machines to track flow rate, a steam LED, temperature sensors and pressure transmitters. When a cup of coffee was being brewed, all the data was collected and visualized -- then used to create a gorgeous piece of art that was printed and attached to coffee cups. The data was also displayed in real time -- showing just how hi-tech and amazing the espresso machine was, and giving you something pretty to look at while you sipped your coffee.
