Your Face on Your Coffee

Personalized foods seem to be on the rise, we've already noted the personalized chocolate heads and miniature jelly beans and now we've found this robot called the Barista Bot from a collaboration between Rock Paper Robot, Jamie Zigelbaum and Kyle McDonald.

Shown at the SXSW Festival the bot paints perfect latte art by scanning the features of a customers face and copying them onto the top of their latte foam.

The team behind the technology say they wanted to make a common day activity, such as buying coffee, interactive and fun.

The video below shows the Barista Bot in action but we're not sure the robot beats the second video in which humans show off their latte art skills.
