An expresso machine run fully by app

John from Magnatune is interested in making an android application accessible to those who are blind if people are interested in an expreso machine which has no buttons but has an app which would be used to run it. Here is an E-mail he asked me to share with you.

Hi Jared, I’m working on a new project (while still keeping up with Magnatune), it’s the design and manufacture of a tablet-controlled espresso machine.

You can see it at http://decentespresso.com

The reason I’m writing you is that I’m thinking about sight impaired use of this machine.

There are two interesting aspects to this machine for sight impaired use:
1) I’m trying hard to not have any hot-enough-to-burn surfaces, something which isn’t the case for traditional espresso machines
2) it’s entirely controlled by an android tablet. This means it can speak to you, and (if there isn’t too much ambient noise) could be controlled by speaking
3) possibly… other android sight-impaired approaches ?

Can I ask you:
1) do you know, or could you find out, if there’s any interest from the sight impaired world, in a proper espresso machine?
2) any suggestions you’d have for making the android tablet sight-impaired friendly? I’m the programmer of the tablet (and the web site) and you know I take these issues seriously, and can deliver!


To give him feedback, he has asked me to pass along the E-mail address of so please contact him directly if this is of interest to you. Thanks for reading!
