Philips has developed a coffee maker that can recognize users via their fingerprint and make coffee just the way that individual likes it, according to a Daily Mail article.
When someone uses the machine, called Saeco Xelsis, for the first time he presses his fingerprint into the sensor three times to create a new profile and then follows the interface to decide how he would like different coffee drinks such as cappuccino or latte made each time he uses the machine.
While the coffee machine, which in addition to remembering user profiles also warms cups and self-cleans, costs over $2700, Philips officials believe the machine is so specialized and top of the line that true coffee lovers will not be put off by the hefty price tag.
The machine can program up to six different user profiles while also being able to operate outside of any profiles making nine different drinks with additional compartments for granulated coffee and a steam arm for boiling water.
