Espresso Extravaganza

9 05 2008

I’m excited!

Tomorrow, Sam and I are going to spend the afternoon extracting espresso, steaming milk and pouring latte art at his place.

Usually I make 2 coffees at a time. If we have people over, I might make up to 6 or 7. Tomorrow we are planning on making dozens! It will be great to get some practice in as my art has been very poor (pour?) of late.

If all goes well, I will post some photos.

And as an added bonus, imagine how much reading I will get done without the need for sleep for the next few days!

USB-powered universe

I have already mentioned how I like to Zazz.

Zazz have an array of USB powered devices. From mini fridges to mitten warmers. From cup-coolers to colourful copters. But todays Zazz has blown my mind. It is a USB-powered rechargeable, AA battery!

Wow! Is there no end to the things that can be USB-powered?

Maybe the USB port is the answer to the worlds energy crisis? We could have USB powered cars, USB-powered airplanes and even giant, USB-powered power stations!

I think I’m on to something here….
