Here's the Textspresso, a contraption that makes coffee when you text it from Seattle tech company Zipwhip. (It's just promotional, they're not making it for sale.) CEO John Lauer told GeekWire the Textspresso is comprised of "nearly 300 different parts in a hacked up Ikea cabinet," and not only makes your coffee via texted command, it will also eventually be able to print your name and phone number on top of the drink with edible ink.

Also, apparently the machine cannot reject orders — so if the phone number somehow gets published, it's a non-stop coffee fiesta at the Zipwhip offices. Here's Lauer explaining how it works:
