What is surely the result of brainstorming under the influence of far too much caffeine, coffee addict Tim Hirzel presents his hacked Rancilio Silvia espresso machine. With the help of an Arduino micro-controller, Hirzel has managed to allow the espresso machine to be controlled by the Wii Nunchuk controller.
The Silvia espresso machine, which now features an integrated calendar, sleep timer, wake-up alarm, and temperature regulation, can all be remotely controlled using the Wii peripheral. Hit the jump for a video demonstration.
