IoT: "smart" Coffee Maker

The internet of things will now make your coffee | News | PC Pro:

"The $150 device allows you to switch the coffee maker on to a schedule, "monitor your brew status" and modify the strength of the brew using the WeMo app for iOS and Android devices. The device can also be triggered remotely, so you can have a fresh pot waiting when you walk through the door of an evening, or simply fire up the machine without even getting out of bed."
