Since everything is fully automated it will grind your coffee, steam milk, brew, and dispose of the grinds all with the touch of a button.

Check out what Sony has in store for us now; two new cyber-shot touch screen, 10 megapixel digital cameras. You might have trouble choosing between the two. The DSC-T700 ($400) comes with a 4GB built in storage space that can hold nearly 1,000 full-resolution photos, which you can view on the 3.5 inch LCD touchscreen. However, the DSC-T77 ($300) stole the title for the world’s thinnest touchscreen point and shoot camera. Only 5/8 of an inch thin with a 3 inch LCD touchscreen. Both cameras feature updated scene recognition technology, a new anti-blink function, Smile Shutter and face detection technologies. Taking a great picture never seemed so easy. See how slim the T77 really is.
