So When Can I Have An Android Dock That Doubles As A Toaster?


We’ve seen some pretty unique accessories for Android phones over the past couple of years. Ulysse Nardin made a pretty nice speaker/travel box/USB hub/dock combo for their exquisite (and expensive) Chairman phone, and now a company named Metatrend thought it’d be a good idea to make an espresso machine that would nestle your Android phone.


The concept is pretty weird, but cool at the same time: you dock your phone as you go to make your liquid crack, and the phone would scan a QR code based on what flavor coffee you throw into the machine. Depending on the flavor, you’ll hear music that’s supposed to go perfect with your drink. I never knew music and coffee could be associated in this manner, but I’ll bite.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
