Espresso Machine Smartphone Case


That's different.

From Oddity Central:



Mokase is the world's first smartphone case that also serves users a warm shot of espresso whenever and wherever they want.

It's aimed at people who are always on the go and whose hectic lifestyle prevents them from stopping by a coffee shop or even a vending machine for a dose of caffeine.

Smart K, the Italian company that came up with the concept for Mokase, claims that they were looking for a way to make coffee available anywhere, and pairing it with the smartphone just made the most sense.

We thought, "How to make it always available? Why not join it to a gadget that is already a piece of our lifetime?"

The heatproof case works with thin capsules containing the water and ground beans necessary to prepare espresso.


All you have to do is insert a capsule into the case, and whenever you feel the need for a fresh shot of espresso, all you have to do is access the Mokase app on your phone and press a virtual button.

A built-in battery will heat up the coffee in the capsule to 122°-140°F.

When it's ready, another button press in the Mokase app will allow you to pour the espresso through an orifice at the top of the case.

Smart K says that the pipe through which the espresso is pumped is made of a aluminum-silicon alloy that can handle hot liquids without releasing toxins.

The special case also comes with a cleverly-designed pop-up cup that doubles as a colored key-ring when not in use.

You'll get 25ml of espresso from a capsule, slightly less than a regular shot of espresso, which is an ounce (29ml).

You can also order disposable coffee capsules in packs of 15, 30, or 50.

The coffee-making case fits a variety of smartphone models from Apple, Samsung, HUAWEI, and LG.


$56 (smartphone not included).
