MooBella is a Linux based fully automated made to order ice cream vending machine. MooBella is creating some buzz and ice cream at DEMO 2006 this week. It allows a user to create a custom bowl of ice cream within forty seconds. This is not soft serve ice cream either, I am talking about the real deal, with toppings too. As MooBella states on its website:
“MooBella is where taste meets technology.”
I love it when taste meets technology! The plan is to have MooBella install on several college campuses across the country. I would not mind having one next to the water cooler at work.
For other reports on MooBella from the blogosphere check out these posts on Brooks Sky Bennett, Software Only, Cute & Adorable Gadgets and Lockergnome's Tech News Watch.
UPDATE: Ironically, on my ride to work this morning MooBella was mentioned on both Om and Niall Podsession and Buzz Out Loud podcasts.
