this is perhaps the most beautiful expresso machine concept i have ever seen and i am secretly crossing my fingers that some manufacturer will pick it up and make it. designed like a pistol, the iL Tiro – One Shot of Expresso has a pistol grip with trigger and cartridges for three shots of expresso. check out the video that explains the workings of this concept after the break. the video is pretty self explanatory which, after watching, leaves little for me to explain. i am totally sold. i was thinking, perhaps it is a weapon after all. since it gives you a shot that could drive the ‘Z’ monster in you away. very appropriate, indeed.
oh, like the gun of the future as we have envisioned, it comes with a docking station to charge up the iL Tiro and to top up your spent cartridges for your next battle with the ‘Z’ monster. judging from the video, it probably clean like a firearm too. kudos to design students Stefan Riegebauer, Christina Carli, Florian Kainz and Niko Schwarz for coming up with such a brilliant concept.
