Nespresso Capsule Detector

I use my Nespresso every day, I freaking love it. What would I do without an easy to make, on demand source of caffeine..? I’d never wake up haha.

The only pain is that the Nespresso capsules are not properly labeled once they come out of the box. They use a complicated system of colors, but if you lose or throw away the box there is no way of knowing which flavor is which…

Until now of course!

TheĀ team built a color sensing Nespresso capsule tricorder. Just place the pod in the device and it will automatically tell you the flavor, the “boldness” and the recommended coffee size! Super neat and another great example of rapid prototyping ingenuity mixed with color science and color sensing knowledge.
