A cloud service company called ZipWhip hacked a superautomatic espresso machine to take orders via text message.

The device is based on the Raspberry Pi platform, and uses ZipWhip’s own text-internet gateway service to take your order.

While this may not sound terribly useful on its own, perhaps if combined with a robot arm to to position a cup and a toy drone to deliver the espresso to you, you’d have a completely automated espresso service. Someone should get on that!
