Coffee Machine Uses Fingerprints to Brew Your Java

It's true that in an office or home setting, where there are many people using the same coffee machine, it would be simpler just to use your fingerprint to make your cup of coffee just the way you like it, especially if the coffee maker has got a lot of custom settings. However, is it worth it?

This great coffee machine uses fingerprints to make your own custom cup of java. It's called the Xelsis Digital ID from Saeco and it will brew your perfect cup of coffee every single time.

All of your preferences are matched to your fingerprint, so there will be not bumbling around to get it just right. You just have the machine scan your finger, and voilĂ ! However, all this technology doesn't come cheap. The Xelsis costs a whopping $2,500 and for that price, you can probably get a bunch of great machines.

In fact, by spending a fifth of that price, you can grab yourself the ultra-customizable Breville Espresso Machine, which is a lot better deal than this machine. This machine is probably best suited for upscale corporate environment, where they won't mind spending this much on a coffee machine.
