This Coffee Robot Will Make Latte Art Out of Your Face

The future is here. Sure, we may not have hoverboards, flying cars or just about anything else suggested by Back to the Future Part II. We do, however, have computers in our pockets that can access the entirety of recorded human history and armchairs that will automatically refill our beers. Now we also have artistically inclined barista robots.

The Barista Bot, created by Hypersonic and Rock Paper Robot will make you a latte topped with the best art of all, a recreation of your face. It works by using real time data analysis of facial characteristics. The result? Your beautiful mug staring up at you from inside a beautiful mug. It’s enough to get the narcissist in us a bit weepy.

This caffeinated automaton premiered at last week’s SXSW festival in Austin, Texas as a marketing stunt for General Electric. It hasn’t been programmed to make flowers yet so you baristas out there can breathe a sigh of relief. Your jobs are still here. For now.
